- Title: WRAP: Protesters welcome leaders attending G7 summit in UK
- Date: 11th June 2021
- Summary: (SOUNDBITE) (English) BRITISH FOREIGN SECRETARY, DOMINIC RAAB, SAYING: "There are global problems we can only tackle together. We want China on board to deal with climate change so that we can tackle that together. We can't deal with climate change unless we can bring China on board. We really need to be very clear about some of the hostile state activity that Russia has been engaged in, particularly, for example, cyber attacks. And I think we ought to be clear as an international community that cyber attacks on hospitals, on schools, on critical national infrastructure, that's wrong. That's unjustifiable. It's beyond the pale. So I think standing up for the international order, being clear about the rules that apply, being clear about the values that apply, and being clear to both Russia and China as leading members of the international community, they must live up to their responsibilities. That's a pretty important message to come out of this G7."

Leaders of the G7 nations gathered for a three-day summit in Cornwall, England, on Friday (June 11), to discuss issues ranging from COVID-19 vaccines and economic recovery to climate change and geopolitics.
The Group of Seven wealthy nations plans to donate 1 billion COVID-19 vaccine doses to poorer countries, but campaigners said the plan lacks ambition and shows Western leaders are not yet up to the job of tackling the worst public health crisis in a century.
The race to bring an end to a pandemic that has killed around 3.9 million people globally will feature prominently at the three-day summit which begins on Friday in the English seaside resort of Carbis Bay.
British foreign minister Dominic Raab warned that other countries were using vaccines as diplomatic tools to secure influence.
The G7 is made up of the United States, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan. Representatives from the European Union also attend. This year South Korea, South Africa and Australia will attend parts of the summit. India, also an invited guest, will participate in some of the summit virtually.
