G7 summit seven leaders show unanimous position: to sum up the lessons of the epidemic to achieve economic recovery

Leaders of major countries attending the opening of the G7 summit in Cornwall, southwest England, showed “unprecedented unanimity” on the first day of the summit to enable the world to recover as soon as possible after the new coronavirus pandemic. The G7 leaders agreed to provide more than 1 billion doses of the new crown vaccine to the world, and British Prime Minister Johnson said the G7 summit provided an opportunity for countries to rebuild after the pandemic.

AFP reports that this is the first time in nearly two years that G7 leaders have met face-to-face, and host British Prime Minister Johnson said in his opening remarks that the G7 summit in Britain “provides an opportunity” for the major countries to take stock of the lessons learned from the new crown pandemic and rebuild a better world. Johnson said the summit is essential because we must learn from the New Crown pandemic to avoid repeating it in the future.

The G-7 leaders agreed to deliver a total of more than 1 billion doses of the new crown vaccine to the world. The UK will provide 5 million doses in the coming weeks, followed by a total of 100 million doses.

According to the Central News Agency, following the support of the United States and the United Kingdom to thoroughly investigate the source of the 2019 coronavirus disease, the European Union has also expressed its support, and if the G7 leaders reach a consensus, they will probably jointly call on the World Health Organization to conduct the next phase of the investigation.

U.S. President Joe Biden held bilateral talks with British Prime Minister Johnson on Friday, after which they issued a joint statement saying they would set up a “global outbreak radar” and support the next phase of the World Health Organization’s investigation into the origins of the outbreak, including China.

The European Council President Michel and EU President von der Leyen will also attend the G7 summit on Friday. When the two attended a press conference earlier, the media asked whether the EU supported further investigation into the source of the new coronavirus, both responded that it was important to understand the origin of the virus.

Von der Leyen further said that this is a terrible global pandemic and it is important to know its origin in order to learn the right lessons and thus develop the right tools to ensure that it never happens again.

Therefore, she said, experts investigating the virus need to have full access to all the information needed to uncover the source of the disease, and must find a conclusion.

The U.S., U.K. and EU leaders are now showing support for the investigation, and if a consensus is reached at the summit, the G7 statement could include an explicit call for WHO experts to travel to China for the next phase of an independent investigation.

Separately, British Prime Minister Johnson expressed support for the Tokyo Olympics to Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga. Johnson met Friday with Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, who is attending the G-7 leaders’ summit.

Downing Street Prime Minister’s Office said Johnson expressed support for the Tokyo Olympics to Kan and welcomed efforts to ensure the Olympics can be held safely.

Tokyo Organizing Committee Chairman Seiji Hashimoto previously said she would be grateful if the G7 could support the Tokyo Olympics to be held as planned, and she said the committee had set up a new New Crown Vaccination Center in Tokyo, with Olympic-related staff.

According to another source familiar with the matter, G7 leaders broadly agreed that fiscal stimulus needs to be maintained to support economic development.

Reuters reported that the source noted that the G7 leaders believe that long-term policies should be in place to ensure that future governments are fiscally sound. The G7 leaders also believe that the recent post-blockade inflationary spike in many countries is only a short-lived phenomenon.
