China says G7 communique grossly interfered with its affairs

Crikey. Cry me a river. Talk about the teapot calling the kettle a naughty name...

They may have grown economically but diplomatically, the CCP are still in their infancy throwing toys out the playpen at every opportunity.

Really need the contents of the communique in the same article so we don't have to search for it. On the other hand, China will always find something to be outraged about. It has a fragile ego.

Of course, the pathetic US flea circus does everything their master tells them to do.

Wang said "it was full of arrogance,

Wang is a Dick

China said a communique by the G7 meeting grossly interfered in its internal affairs, and maliciously smeared and discredited the country, the Chinese foreign ministry said on Tuesday.

Sure, but it wasn't "interference in internal affairs" when China went ballistic when the Taiwan President met with US officials IN THE US....

Go pound sand Wang....

If they had Russia in the G8 and as an ally with energy leverage against China, China would not be making as many statements.

For a trade and economy view, there’s no comparison. This bloc has gender equality, gay rights, color and race politics, capital markets bloated with paper money, crippling debt, saturated markets, credit default swaps and humanity majors who touch up and upload pdf’s with rehashed points.

The other bloc has oil, gas, gold, rare earths, manufacturing, industry, metals, an artificial sun, skilled STEM workers, industrial markets, unsaturated markets, labor force and population.

 and maliciously smeared and discredited the country,

China is doing that all on it's own through it's actions, threats, and ridiculous foreign ministry statements.

23 ( +25 / -2 )

I would say China has grossly interfered with many countries internal affairs, and maliciously smeared and discredited their own country all by themselves.

Is the above from the country that has set up jails in foreign countries?. Mighty rich, if so?

You grossly don't get it mate. Bullies don't get to magically play the victim card when there's pushback. The doublespeak only works within your own ranks, not ours. A free and open Indo Pacific. It aint rocket science. ( Unless of course you are an extension of North Korea )

Wow, quercetum, looks like we don't stand a chance. We had better become immensely more authoritarian and rally around fragile egos too, right, if we are going to keep up with that enlightened quarter of the world? Which side are you on?

10 ( +12 / -2 )

China is one giant interference in the Asia Pacific. It needs some interference to reign it back in.

And what makes you think this is less powerful than the gas station/intellectual property theft block?

12 ( +14 / -2 )

Grow up, China.

For such a bullying and arrogant nation they sure are immature and sensitive crybabies.

Imagine Chinese led 'group' holding such meetings, it's coming soon to theater near you!

This is a good point. The relevant portion of the text of the communique is:

We recognize the importance of engaging candidly with and expressing our concerns directly to China. We acknowledge the need to work together with China on global challenges as well as areas of common interest, including on climate change, biodiversity, global health security, and gender equality. We reiterate our call for China to act as a responsible member of the international community. We stand prepared to work together to build constructive and stable relations through dialogue and to promote global economic recovery and people-to-people exchanges in a mutually beneficial way. It is in the interest of all countries, including China, to ensure transparent, predictable, and fair business environments. Legitimate business activities and interests of foreign companies must be protected from unfair, anti-competitive, and non-market practices, including through illegitimate technology transfer or data disclosure in exchange for market access. We encourage China to uphold its commitments to act responsibly in cyberspace, including refraining from conducting or supporting cyber-enabled intellectual property theft for commercial gain.

We remind China of the need to uphold the purposes and principles of the UN Charter and abstain from threats, coercion, intimidation, or the use of force. We remain seriously concerned about the situation in the East and South China Seas. We strongly oppose any unilateral attempts to change the status quo by force or coercion. There is no legal basis for China’s expansive maritime claims in the South China Sea, and we oppose China’s militarization activities in the region. We emphasize the universal and unified character of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) and reaffirm UNCLOS’ important role in setting out the legal framework that governs all activities in the oceans and the seas. We reiterate that the award rendered by the Arbitral Tribunal on July 12, 2016, is a significant milestone, which is legally binding upon the parties to those proceeding, and a useful basis for peacefully resolving disputes between the parties.

We reaffirm the importance of peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait as an indispensable element in security and prosperity in the international community, and call for the peaceful resolution of cross-Strait issues. There is no change in the basic positions of the G7 members on Taiwan, including stated one China policies. We support Taiwan’s meaningful participation in international organizations, including in the World Health Assembly and WHO technical meetings, as a member where statehood is not a prerequisite and as an observer or guest where it is. The international community should be able to benefit from the experience of all partners. We continue to raise our concerns with China on reported human rights violations and abuses, including in Xinjiang and Tibet. We reiterate our concerns over the continued erosion of Hong Kong’s autonomy rights and freedoms, and call on China to act in accordance with its international commitments and legal obligations, including those enshrined in the Sino-British Joint Declaration and the Basic Law.

We call on China to act in accordance with its obligations under the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.

China said a communique by the G7 meeting grossly interfered in its internal affairs,

No, it clearly didn't. Yet another Chinese lie.

and maliciously smeared and discredited the country, the Chinese foreign ministry said on Tuesday.

It did nothing of the sort. China lie's yet again.

Mr Wang does not realize China gets no respect from the majority of the worlds nations because it obviously does not deserve it. It interferes in Taiwan's internal and external affairs on a daily basis.

China acts like it is above everyone else and complains when it is not treated that way. No sympathy for them. They need to grow up and act like adults not schoolyard children.

Perhaps you mean the enslaved territories to rid themselves of the colonizers ?

Taiwan is not enslaved currently and neither is Ukraine.

malignant despotic China, angered by stereotypes

The G-7 foreign ministers' communique said that they would address "the various challenges in the Indo-Pacific", probably, with China's assertive activities in the region in mind. And so Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin's remark may be an overreaction.’

3 ( +3 / -0 )

What a charismatic spokesman Wang Wenbin is, not. Completely devoid of any semblance of personality whose main claim to fame is that he is literate to the extent that he can read prepared dribble.

The comminique states in crystal-clear terms all of the ways in which China needs to listen very clearly to the concerns of the free democratic worlds' legislators and mend her ways accordingly - zero point in crying about 'interference' and whining about feeling victimised.

The only way to curtail the expansionist aims of the CCP is to boycott anything and everything with 'Made in China' stamped on it..... I know this can be quire difficult, but I've been doing this for many years now, there are always alternatives to be found for anything.

Only by pricking the Chinese bubble can they be taught to play by the accepted international rules.

Thanks, rainyday. It's pretty uncontroversial but China is paranoid. I often think it has the national equivalent of borderline personality disorder.

Who?

Dictatorship says what?

China wants to be the life of the party only the party music sucks like their policies. For example the one child policy that they strongly believed in has now come to bite them in the arse, Covid you name it they deny it!!

5 ( +5 / -0 )

Well, most of the world would agree with that communique…

Time for China to mature on the world stage a bit more.

6 ( +6 / -0 )

It isn't China that's the problem. It is the CCP. Don't ever confuse those. The CCP is going away, but China and Chinese people will eventually be free.

1 ( +3 / -2 )

China deserves all those “smears" and "discredits" and more. Its actions regarding independent and democratic Taiwan, the Senkakus and South China (sic) Sea are despicable.
