Chinese Foreign Ministry summons Japan's ambassador to Beijing after G7 summit
Chinese Deputy Foreign Minister Sun Weidong summoned the Japanese ambassador to Beijing to protest the "hype around China-related issues" at the G7 summit
Reuters reported the information.
According to him, Japan cooperated with other countries at the G7 summit "to smear and attack China, grossly interfering in China's internal affairs, violating the basic principles of international law and the spirit of the four political documents between China and Japan," referring to the 1972 Joint Statement of China and Japan.
In addition, he also said that Japan's actions are harmful to China's sovereignty, security and development interests, and that China is "strongly dissatisfied and firmly opposes" these actions.
"Japan should correct its understanding of China, grasp strategic autonomy, adhere to the principles of the four political documents between China and Japan, and truly promote the stable development of bilateral relations with a constructive attitude," Sun emphasized.
On May 19, EU Council President Charles Michel called on China to "put pressure on Russia to stop its military aggression" in Ukraine. According to him, Beijing has influence on Russia.
