Analyst: G7 Summit united the West against China, rather than  Russia

Analyst: G7 Summit united the West against China, rather than  Russia

ArmInfo. Based on the amount of attention given by the G7 to China, it becomes clear that in reality Russia today occupies a rather insignificant place in the G7  coordinate system. A similar opinion was expressed to ArmInfo by  Fyodor Lukyanov, Research director of the Valdai Discussion Club,  Chairman, Council on Foreign and Defense Policy, Editor-in-Chief,  Russia in Global Affairs journal.

On June 14, the three-day summit of the Group of Seven (G7) ended in  British Cornwall at which, for the first time in the past two years,  having gathered face-to-face, the leaders of Great Britain, Germany,  Italy, Canada, the United States, France and Japan discussed the fate  of the world.

"Russia, apparently by tradition, is still mentioned in the final  communique of the NATO summit six times more than China. And  nevertheless, even China, mentioned only 10 times, is still of great  importance. And here it is important to emphasize that Beijing is on  this stage the character is new and for the first time in an official  document it is recognized as a risk to the security of the Alliance.  And the fixation of this fact suits Germany, perhaps less than other  allies in the North Atlantic Alliance. Biden continues to insist on  his line of containing China, and Angela Merkel, as in the case of  Russia, stresses that in addition to containment, dialogue is  necessary," he stressed.

Thus, according to Lukyanov's estimates, one way or another, the  American strategy of containing and limiting China's further growth  has been adopted. For this, the U.S. President and his colleagues  decided to launch the global infrastructure initiative Build Back  Better World (B3W). According to him, the decision is among other  things, due to the intention to form a counterbalance to Beijing's  strategic initiative "One Belt - One Road". This is very significant,  considering that within its framework, since 2013, 70 countries have  already received Chinese strategic investments in infrastructure.  

On June 14, G7 partners agreed to launch the bold new global  infrastructure initiative Build Back Better World (B3W).  According  to the White House press service, the essence of the initiative is "a  values-driven, high- standard, and transparent infrastructure  partnership led by major democracies to help narrow the $40+ trillion  infrastructure need in the developing world.> It is assumed that,  "B3W will be global in scope, from Latin America and the Caribbean to  Africa to the Indo-Pacific.> 

"Thus, we see that Biden not only speaks, but also acts. And with  regard to China, he, in fact, continued Trump's line of containing  China. However, unlike his predecessor, he does it, let's say, with  less noise.  Preferring systematic, coordinated and large-scale work  towards containing China to shouts and threats," analyst stressed.

 "Build Back Better World is projected to reach global reach - from  Latin America and the Caribbean to Africa and the Asia-Pacific  region." So we see that Biden is not only talking, but and works. And  with regard to China, he essentially continued Trump's line of  containing China. However, unlike its predecessor, it does it, shall  we say, with less noise. Preferring systematic, coordinated and  large-scale work towards containing China to shouts and threats, "he  stressed.

Answering the question about possible U.S. actions in the South  Caucasus, in particular, in the Artsakh direction, the analyst  stressed that the regional status quo, formed following the 44-day  war, clearly haunts Washington. And in light of this, the problem is  being discussed and will be discussed at all meetings with the  participation of American diplomats. At the same time, Lukyanov is  convinced that the United States can, to one degree or another,  return to the region solely on the basis of reaching a consensus with  the rest of the players in the South Caucasus.

r"Washington can act in the region only in cooperation with other  players. There are still many problems in the conflict region, the  solution of which does not seem to be a matter of one day. And we see  that geopolitical bargaining with the participation of the United  States is being conducted around the Armenian- Azerbaijani problems.   In this light, I think that the conversation about this will become  part of the negotiating agenda of Putin and Biden on June 16. As for  its results, in this case everything is derived from the general  environment in which the meeting of the presidents will take place,  "the analyst concluded
