China Infuriated by G7 Summit Joint Bulletin’s Remarks on South China Sea

When responding to reporters, China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Keng announced that China is extremely dissatisfied with the G7 summit’s joint statement on the East China Sea and the South China Sea issues. He said that the G7 summit is dictating to China (on what to do) in the name of international law.

Lu said, “We hope that the Group of Seven and the foreign countries will recognize the situation and abide by their commitments not to take sides on controversial issues; fully respect the efforts that the countries in the region make to control disputes; stop issuing irresponsible remarks; and play a constructive role in the peace and stability in the region.
