Calling on China to influence Russia, the countries of the Group of Seven (G7) signed their own impotence. This was announced on Wednesday at a briefing by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, reports today, June 29, TASS.
“They issue some kind of declaration, in which such things are generally written that, even a week ago, I would have argued that the leaders of the G7 could give out – an appeal to China with a request to influence Russia. By this, it seems to me that Western liberal leaders have taken and signed their own impotence, ”said Zakharova.
Zakharova called the behavior of the G-7 leaders at her summit similar to “monkeying”.
“One could call it lightness, but still the moment is so difficult and, by the way, created by them, their political machinations around Ukraine, their political irresponsibility and provocations. And all this has now been exacerbated by the supply of arms, the use of unilateral economic measures, pressure and blackmail against the whole world. It would be possible to be somehow more serious, it seems to me, but, apparently, this is their potential, ”she concluded.
Earlier, the G7 countries in a joint communiqué appealed to China to influence Russia in order to “stop military aggression and withdraw troops from Ukraine.”
“As Russia wages its unjustified, unprovoked and illegal war against Ukraine, we call on China to put pressure on Russia to immediately comply with the legally binding ruling of the International Court of Justice of March 16, 2022 and implement the relevant resolutions of the UN General Assembly and stop its military aggression – and immediately and unconditionally withdraw their troops from Ukraine,” the document says.
