The joint statement emphasized the leaders' intention to provide diplomatic, financial, humanitarian, and military assistance to Ukraine, aiming to raise the costs for Russia and its supporters involved in the ongoing war.
Furthermore, the G7 expressed unwavering support for Ukraine until a comprehensive, fair, and lasting peace is achieved.
The G7 leaders also urged China to use its influence to persuade Russia to promptly and unconditionally withdraw its troops from Ukrainian territory and put an end to its military aggression.
While China has presented itself as a mediator in the conflict, it has not yet called for the withdrawal of Russian forces from Ukraine.
The G7 communiqué encouraged China to collaborate with Ukraine in direct discussions, supporting the establishment of a comprehensive and just peace based on the principles of territorial integrity and the United Nations Charter.
It is worth noting that China's role as a peacemaker has been anticipated by Western leaders due to President Xi Jinping's close relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
However, analysts suggest that this outcome is unlikely given China's vested interests in maintaining a strong alliance with Russia.
By reiterating their support for Ukraine and urging China's intervention, the G7 leaders aim to increase global awareness and engagement regarding the conflict.
The use of diplomatic, financial, and military aid serves to bolster Ukraine's position and exert pressure on Russia and its allies.
The call for China's involvement underscores the significance of international cooperation in resolving the crisis and achieving a just and enduring resolution.
As the G7 leaders take a united stance against Russia's aggression and advocate for a peaceful resolution, the world awaits further developments in this critical geopolitical situation.
