Beijing rejects the group’s demand to halt support for Russia amid sweeping sanctions
China has responded to the G7’s request that Beijing cease support for Russia amid extensive Western sanctions, stating that the country decides its own position and policy based on the “merits of the matter itself,” and that the seven member nations should focus on their own issues instead of intervening in other countries’ internal affairs.
The statement came after the foreign ministers from the Group of Seven (G7), which includes the US, Germany, Italy, Canada, the UK, France and Japan, issued a statement on Saturday calling on Beijing to “resolutely” urge Russia to stop the war in Ukraine and refrain from providing economic and military assistance to the Kremlin. The group also insisted that China “support the sovereignty and independence of Ukraine” and “urge Russia to stop its military aggression against Ukraine.”
