WaPo: G7 accepts U.S. demand for strong statement on China

The Washington Post reports the G7 summit has concluded, and the leaders of the gathered countries had plenty to say about China.

As Group of Seven leaders wrapped their three-day summit here on Sunday, President Biden said democratic governments face a defining challenge: to show they can meet tests such as global health crises and climate change better than autocracies such as China and Russia.

“I think we’re in a contest, not with China per se, but a contest with autocrats, autocratic governments around the world, as to whether or not democracies can compete with them in a rapidly changing 21st century,” Biden told reporters during the first news conference of his first foreign trip as president.

Were there any conversations about the recent stories relating to the U.S. joining with Danish defense officials in spying on Western European leaders? It would appear that’s not part of the American-media narrative.
