G7 leaders on Saturday adopted a rival plan to oppose China’s Belt and Road Initiative by helping build infrastructure in poorer nations in a “values-driven, high-standard and transparent” partnership.

The adoption of the US-inspired “Build Back Better World” (B3W) project came after President Joe Biden and leaders met to address “strategic competition with China and commit to concrete actions to help meet the tremendous infrastructure need in low- and middle-income countries”, the White House said.

Climate change should be top foreign policy priority, G7 study says

Theguardian – Global warming ‘ultimate threat multiplier’ posing serious risk to world security, says report urging governments not to see it simply as a climate issue

The dispute arose from unclear wording of a 1914 treaty which tried to allow free movement of the Turkana people, nomadic herders who had traditionally grazed the area.

G7 Foreign Ministers’ Declaration on Maritime Security in Lübeck, 15 April 2015

TĐH: This declaration of G7 is a very well coordinated global maritime strategy to deal with all issues related to maritime security of the world. And it contains the strength of a dominant group of naval powers of the world: Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States of America and the European Union (which is very much the entire Europe, not just one country).
 
In this long document East and South China Sea is the first item of concern. So we need to understand that China’s aggressive behavior has the benefit of bringing the world together to deal with China, with laws and naval powers. China will see its undoing eventually. The world will slowly squeeze China in so many ways, on so many fronts, one step at a time.
