Cong Peiwu, the CCP’s ambassador to Canada, criticized the G7 as a small political circle that bombards China, but Canadian Foreign Minister Marc Gameau said that the G7 foreign ministers have reached many important consensuses, including the united efforts of all countries to oppose China’s (the CCP’s) arbitrary arrest of two Canadians.
Cong Peiwu criticized at a forum at The Institute For Peace & Diplomacy, a Canadian think tank, on May 6 that the just-concluded summit of the seven foreign ministers took advantage of the opportunity to attack China and made no achievements at all.
Cong Peiwu also said that the real threat was the United States, and he also forced countries around the world to choose sides, reminding Canada not to be led by the nose by the United States.
The Group of Seven (G7) Foreign Ministers’ Summit is concerned about CCP’s violation of democracy and human rights and threats to other countries. Canadian Foreign Minister Gano said that he was very satisfied with the results of the summit. In addition to reaching a consensus on the CCP’s oppression of Xinjiang and Hong Kong’s human rights issues, all countries also condemned the CCP’s detention of two Canadians, Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor.
“At the meeting the ministers of other countries and I discussed CCP’s arbitrary detention of two Canadians and citizens of other countries. Everyone is very supportive of Canada’s position.” Gano said. “This summit is the first face-to-face meeting of ministers from various countries in the past two years. Many important consensuses have been reached unanimously. It is a very successful and important meeting.”
In addition to the seven foreign ministers’ talks, the Canadian and Japanese foreign ministers also held their first face-to-face talks during the summit and reached consensus on six areas, including joint military cooperation.
The statement of the two countries mentioned: “We oppose any unilateral actions, any actions to destabilize the region, and any actions to violate the international maritime order stipulated in the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.” Outsiders believe that the statement clearly accuses the CCP of its provocative actions in the South China Sea in recent years.
Members of the Canadian Parliament from ruling party also expressed support for the alliance of the seven countries to cooperate in the fight against the communists, saying that in the face of economic coercion from the Chinese Communist government, Western democracies should develop a set of mechanisms to support each other.
According to Radio Free Asia, Congressman John McKay from the ruling Federal Liberal Party said that Canada deeply understands the threat from China (the CCP). It is a good practice to unite against the pressure of the CCP internationally, because the Chinese Communist Party is working hard to turn the rest of the world into its “vassal state.”
Michael Chong, Conservative Party Member of Parliament, who specializes in diplomacy, said that at the G7 Summit, the ministers discussed in depth how China (the CCP) can use its economic to threat and use the “Belt and Road” to initiative, which seems to help other countries complete infrastructure construction, but in fact it is to achieve its own hegemonic goal.
Congressman Jack Harris from the Federal New Democratic Party also mentioned that the G7 statement this time shows that everyone is taking a more “positive” attitude towards China, but it still needs to find practical ways to show its power towards Beijing.
Zhuang Wenhao said that although Canada was a medium-sized country but should not despise itself. When the US Trump (previous) government imposed tariffs on Canadian aluminum last year, it took only a few hours for Canada to announce countermeasures against the US, demonstrating that Ottawa is capable of responding the challenges of major power. Canada’s trade reliance on China is very small, accounting for only 4% of Canada’s total exports. There is no need to fear China (the CCP).
Comment: The flaws of democratic countries are capital supremacy and short-sightedness, which run through the cause and consequence of this virus crisis. If it had a long-term vision at first, it would not have funded capital and invested technology to a dictatorship before it changed its brutal nature, then the virus would not be created. If democracies are not greedy, politicians would not be busy promoting vaccines that are likely to cause great harm to the people when the virus is raging, rather than pursuing the culprit of the virus. Therefore, while this crisis provides a good opportunity to eliminate the evil communism, capitalism also needs deep reflection and self-improvement. In this way, human beings will not make the same mistakes and suffer similar disasters repeatedly thus enter a new era of civilization.
