China on Monday urged the Group of Seven (G7) to stop smearing China and interfering in China’s internal affairs. Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian made the remarks during a daily press briefing when asked to comment on the statement issued by a meeting of G7 foreign ministers, which contains various material relating to China, including Hong Kong, Xinjiang, human rights, maritime issues, the situation. in Ukraine, peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait, among others.
“China’s positions on issues relating to Hong Kong, Xinjiang and Taiwan, as well as maritime issues, are consistent and clear,” Zhao said, adding that China has expressed firm opposition to the chairmanship of the Chinese government. G7.
“The lengthy G7 communiqué is filled with absurd allegations that are not even worth refuting. In complete disregard of China’s solemn position and objective facts, it is grossly interfering in the internal affairs of the China, maliciously slander and defame China, and once again exert pressure on China using pretexts such as the Russian-Ukrainian conflict,” Zhao said.
China urges the G7 to uphold the international system with the United Nations at its core, the international order based on international law and the basic norms of international relations based on the purposes and principles of the United Nations Charter, said Mr. Zhao. He called on the G7 to respect China’s sovereignty and stop slandering China and interfering in China’s internal affairs in any form.
“We urge the G7 to act in the interest of world peace and development, to stop applying dual or multiple standards, to stop sending military aircraft and warships to the doorsteps of other countries to muscle up at every turn, stop wanton inciting color revolutions in other countries, stop arbitrarily resorting to illegal sanctions or long-armed jurisdiction, and stop making and spreading lies and rumors about China,” the spokesperson said.
He also urged the G7 to shoulder its responsibility, fulfill its international obligations, preserve genuine multilateralism, focus on global governance, strengthen cooperation with the UN, G20 and other multilateral mechanisms, and to play a positive role in addressing global challenges and promoting economic recovery, instead of clinging to the Cold War mentality and ideological biases, to pursue a group politics of “little clique”, to create the confrontation and division and to sow chaos in the world.
In fact, the G7 controls most of the resources, economy and trade. It has the potential to transform the entire world into a better place for everyone. It has the ability to resolve any pending issues that have been encountered for several decades, such as Palestine, Kashmir, etc. The G7 can use its abilities to save humanity and the total welfare of human beings. Denigrations, threats and coercion will further complicate the situation and could harm humanity. The potential of the G7 must be used positively.
