The Ministry of Foreign Relations condemned any attempt to defame and threaten the sovereignty of the country, after criticizing that bloc for violating norms and going against the principles of cooperation.
It urged the group to focus on reviving the global economy, joining forces against the Covid-19 pandemic, and help developing nations deal with it, rather than instigating conflict in the international community.
The Foreign Ministry stressed that the situation in Hong Kong, Tibet and Xinjiang is the sole responsibility of their government and, furthermore, the participation of Taiwan in the World Health Assembly must be resolved with respect to the one-China policy.
It also repudiated accusations of militarization in the South Sea and demanded respect for Beijing’s sovereignty in that area.
The G-7 foreign ministers the day before launched harsh criticism on China, called on it to comply with its obligations under national and international law, and expressed concern about alleged human rights violations on its territory.
However, they supported future joint cooperation with the Asian power and the need to work in the face of global challenges.
