Beijing, May 28: Chi on Sunday slammed the G7 communique, which had a mention of the disputed East and the South Chi Sea issue. Reacting to the communique released by the G7 countries on Saturday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said the bloc had “interfered in the East Chi Sea and South Chi Sea issues in the guise of intertiol law”.

Chi has been committed to properly handling disputes, cementing cooperation, and safeguarding peace and stability of the East Chi Sea and the South Chi Sea through talks and consultations directly with related parties, Lu was quoted as saying by Xinhua news agency.

Lu urged G7 and countries outside to understand the situation, stick to the pledge to take no position on relevant disputes, fully respect the efforts made by countries in the region to handle disputes, and stop making irresponsible remarks. Chi is locked in a disputed with Japan, the Philippines, and other countries over the East and the South Chi Sea.
