It is reported that the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken reiterated in a statement after the G7 foreign ministers’ meeting this month that the G7 countries should clearly understand it was necessary and critical to take a concerted attitude toward Communist China.
The G7 foreign ministers’ meeting was reportedly held on November 3rd in Münster, western Germany. The meeting was aimed at coordinating the strategies of the divided seven countries towards Moscow, Beijing and Tehran. During the meeting, the US urged its Western partners again to take a hard line against Communist China. Blinken said it became evident during the discussion that all countries should take unanimous measures in the face of Beijing’s growing coercion and work together to counter Beijing’s market-distorting policies and practices, which hurt industrial workers in all G7 countries.
The meeting concluded on November 4th and released a joint statement, reaffirming the importance of peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait and expressing strong opposition to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s attempts to unilaterally change the status quo around the Taiwan Strait. In addition, the statement expressed concerns about the human rights situation in places such as the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region and Hong Kong.
