Whether it is emphasizing competition or looking forward to cooperation, China has become an important issue that cannot be avoided among Western countries.
The Group of Seven (G7) held a video summit last Friday (February 19), and the Munich Security Conference was also held on the same day. It is the first major international multilateral conference that Biden has participated in since he assumed the presidency of the United States. It is also the first “gathering” of the leaders of the seven nations since April last year.
Before the meeting, it was rumored that the G7 chairman and British Prime Minister Johnson wanted South Korea, India and Australia to join the G7 physical summit originally scheduled to be held in June and convert it into a D10 alliance meeting. Johnson expects the D10 member states to join forces to fight China in technology.
This idea caused some European opposition. Italian diplomats have expressed concern about the new model of D10 and that it will be regarded as the new anti-China alliance in the Indo-Pacific region. Italy wants to ensure that the G7 will not change permanently. Some in France also pointed out that this was a British practice to dilute the power of the European Union.
