G-7 Leaders Committed to Peace, Stability of Taiwan

Leaders of the Group of Seven key industrialized nations clarified their commitment on Sunday to the importance of peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait, cautioning against Chinese military pressure on the self-ruled island.
   "We underscore the importance of peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait, and encourage the peaceful resolution of cross-strait issues," the G-7 leaders said in a communique summing their discussions at the three-day meeting through Sunday in a seaside resort in Cornwall, southwestern England.
   This is the first time for a G-7 summit statement to refer to Taiwan, which China regards as a breakaway province that needs to be reunited with the mainland.
   In an indirect reference to China, the leaders also said, "We remain seriously concerned about the situation in the East and South China Seas and strongly oppose any unilateral attempts to change the status quo and increase tensions."
   The G-7 leaders expressed their support for the holding of the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games this summer as planned after a one-year postponement caused by the novel coronavirus pandemic.
