But the preparation of the beach was intended to send another message. Under America’s renewed leadership, the world’s leading Western democracies begin to function again.
Four years after Donald Trump’s presidency, when diplomatic shouts at G7 summits were more likely to be a feature than alfresco’s cozy dinner, there was a sigh of relief. “This is the first time in the last four years that they have been in contact with each other,” said a British official.
The warmth of Biden was reflected in the bonhomie between US President and French President Emanuel Macron, who walked along the white sands of the Caribbean Gulf with his arms wrapped around each other. “The United States is back,” Biden said. Macron answered with a retaliatory blow. “Yes, definitely.”
The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris John Onson, who was hosted as a host after Brexit, called the three-day meeting “historic”.

But although there was an agreement on additional funding for vaccines in the developing world, a plan to fight future epidemics, funding for girls’ education, an agreement on the need to fund “clean, green” projects in the developing world, there were differences of opinion. ,
Biden says summit sees momentum as West tightens its grip on China A “democratic” alternative to the China Belt Road Initiative, which Washington says is spreading Beijing ‘s influence, including volatile debt and poor labor standards, around the world.
“I think you are going to see direct market deals with China,” Biden told reporters after the summit.
But while White House officials said the first session of the G7 on Saturday focused on China, Britain tried to avoid such a framework by saying it was about “building better” after the epidemic.
In his closing remarks, John Onson declined to mention China. An EU diplomat said John Onson, Canada’s Just Astin Trudeau and Mario Draghi of Italy insisted that the G7 should focus on doing something positive for the West, not deliberately opposing China.
EU countries wanted to emphasize what they thought was a more subtle view relations with Beijing“Our approach is that we need to work with China on climate change, compete in areas such as global supply chains, challenge China’s human rights record,” said one European diplomat.

Against the backdrop of blue skies and white sand beaches, the leaders met Queen Elizabeth in a futuristic nature park, and their spouses moved to the Cornish High Theater. RAF red arrows hovered over the beach barbecue. Compared to recent G7 summits, the event was flooded with goodwill.
But Brexit continued to insist on John Onson’s attempt to project a picture of a confident “summoning” country that would reunite the world. Instead, the Prime Minister withdrew in rhetorical battles with the UK’s closest trading partners in Europe.
