China is ready to strengthen and expand cooperation with Russia after the G7 summit held May 19-21 in Hiroshima due to deteriorating relations with Western countries. This was reported by the Washington Post, citing experts in the field of international relations.
We note that the G7 summit only underscored the growing geopolitical divide between China and Russia on the one hand, and the United States and its allies on the other.
“China is ready to expand relations with Russia after the G7 summit, because the central topic of the summit was not only the (conflict) <..> in Ukraine, but also China, and how the West should handle it,” said Alexander Korolev, lecturer in international relations at the University of New South Wales in Australia.
The publication adds that the Chinese authorities have chosen to act “with restraint and moderation”, but as the difficulties in relations with the West grow and the “NATOisation” of the Asia-Pacific region, the restraint may disappear. .
According to the publication, the Chinese authorities are acting “with restraint and moderation”, but as relations with Western countries deteriorate and the “NATO” of the Asia-Pacific region, the restraint could be in vain.
“We have to understand that (now) China is acting with restraint and moderation, and I don’t think the West appreciates that,” said Lyle Goldstein, a China expert.
Earlier, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the G7 summit decisions were aimed at a dual lockdown of Russia and China. According to him, the West is ready to confront any country that wants to claim an independent place in the world. The Russian Foreign Ministry also called the G7 summit an “incubator” for initiatives that undermine global stability.
