Chinese Embassy in UK Protested Against G7 Statements
OREANDA-NEWS. China expresses extreme dissatisfaction and strong protest in connection with the statements made against it at the G7 summit in England. This is stated in the statement of the press secretary of the PRC Embassy in Great Britain, published on the website of the diplomatic mission.
At the end of the G7 summit, which was held in Cornwall in southern England from 11 to 13 June, the G7 spoke in favor of continuing cooperation with China on issues of common interest, but called on the Chinese authorities to respect human rights, especially in Xinjiang and Hong Kong. The G7 leaders stressed "the importance of maintaining peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait and the peaceful resolution of regional problems," and also expressed concern over the situation in the East China and South China Seas.
China's statement reads: "The communiqué following the G7 summit contains distorted facts about the situation around Xinjiang, Hong Kong and Taiwan, the truth is presented as false, China is deliberately denigrated. This is gross interference in China's internal affairs, a serious violation of the basic principles of international relations ... We express extreme discontent and strong protest. "
The embassy representative stressed that against this background, the international community needs the unity and cooperation of all, but the summit showed the world an example of bloc politics and a policy of force, which artificially creates confrontation and division.
"We urge the United States and other G7 members to respect the facts, stop slandering China, stop meddling in internal affairs, and stop undermining China's interests," the statement said.
