U.S. President Joe Biden walks with National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan as he arrives for the final session of the G7 summit in Carbis Bay, Cornwall, Britain, June 13, 2021. Doug Mills/Pool via REUTERSWhite House national security adviser Jake Sullivan said on Sunday G7 leaders rallied around the need to “counter and compete” with China on challenges ranging from safeguarding democracy to the technology race. "Words like counter and compete were words coming out of the mouths of every leader in the room, not just Joe Biden," he said. G7 leaders also sought to counter China's growing influence by offering developing countries an infrastructure plan that could rival Beijing's Belt and Road Initiative by supporting projects such as railways in Africa and wind farms in Asia. It says many major powers are still gripped by an outdated imperial mindset after years of humiliating China.

China denounced on Monday a joint statement by the Group of Seven leaders that had scolded Beijing over a range of issues as a gross interference in the country's internal affairs, and urged the grouping to stop slandering China. China is a peace-loving country that advocates cooperation, but also has its bottom lines, the embassy said. 'COUNTERING CHINA'Taiwan's government welcomed the G7 statement, saying the Chinese-claimed island will be a "force for good" and that they will continue to seek even greater international support. read moreChina's embassy said the G7 should do more that is conducive to promoting international cooperation instead of artificially creating confrontation and friction. "We urge the United States and other members of the G7 to respect the facts, understand the situation, stop slandering China, stop interfering in China's internal affairs, and stop harming China's interests."

"They will talk about political and economic issues that are more challenging ... that have been challenges in our relationship, including human rights-related issues," Sullivan told reporters on arriving in Brussels late on Sunday. Erdogan said on leaving Turkey the same evening that he expected an "unconditional approach" from Biden to move on from past troubles. "Turkey is not just any country, it is an allied country. The most important one of these is the F-35 issue," Erdogan said of Washington's decision to remove Turkey from a fighter jet programme. "While both sides are expected to pursue some pragmatic engagement and neither is interested in a showdown, the meeting will not provide Erdogan with any meaningful dividend," consultancy Teneo said in a note ahead of the talks.

Biden is in Belgium to meet NATO leaders. But a recent report said European militaries are too ill equipped to meet challenges posed by China. President Joe Biden plans to push NATO allies to adopt a tougher stance towards China at his first summit as president, but a new report says its a challenge few European members of the group are equipped to meet. The study detailed decades of decline by European militaries, such as: "Much of Europe's military hardware is in a shocking state of disrepair. The allies' inability to meet the challenges that Biden considers key could also be the source of new tensions.

Ahead of his highly anticipated meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, President Joe Biden agreed Sunday that U.S.-Russian relations are at a "low point" and said he was open to a prisoner exchange with Moscow to clamp down on cybercrime. I think he is right it is a low point," Biden said about Putin's recent assessment of the Moscow-Washington relationship. In a statement last week, Trump asked Biden to "please give [Putin] my warmest regards" and defended his "great and very productive meeting in Helsinki." Biden and Putin will hold separate news conferences after their meeting in Switzerland, a sign of the chillier relationship. "There's a lot going on where we can work together with Russia," Biden said.

Patrick Semansky/Pool via REUTERSG7 leaders meeting in Britain will endorse U.S. President Joe Biden's proposal for global minimum tax of at least 15% on corporations, White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan said on Twitter on Friday. The U.S. Treasury in May proposed a global minimum corporate tax of at least 15% to try to end a downward spiral of corporate tax rates. U.S. tech giants such as Facebook (FB.O) and Amazon (AMZN.O) could benefit from the agreement to create a global minimum 15% corporate tax rate if the final deal also scraps increasingly popular digital services taxes, according to industry lobbyists. https://reut.rs/359z1u1The decision had been expected after G7 finance officials backed a tax rate of at least 15% during a meeting on June 5. They said they were confident that the global minimum tax rate could ultimately be pushed higher than 15%, citing "the ambition of the discussions thus far."

WASHINGTON — The family of Danny Fenster, a U.S. journalist detained in Myanmar two weeks ago, is calling on President Joe Biden to personally intervene as independent efforts to reach Fenster have failed, his brother said in an interview on Wednesday. “We have heard from everybody with the exception of the White House,” Bryan Fenster, Danny’s brother, told NBC News. Bryan Fenster said the family has been "working our tails off" to contact his brother without results. The Foreign Correspondents Club of Thailand estimated in May that Fenster was one of over 70 journalists detained in Myanmar since February.

“In international relations, all politics is personal,” Biden said during a visit to South Korea in 2013. Just after touching down in the U.K. Wednesday, Biden told service members at a Royal Air Force station in Mildenhall that he’d visited “well over 100 countries” as a senator and vice president. Biden offered: “Possibilities.”“Personal relationships are the only vehicle by which you build trust,” Biden told Xi two years later when he returned for more meetings in Beijing. There’s a risk, though, of focusing on the personal at the expense of the substance. But Biden has often told the story of his last-known face-to-face meeting with Putin, telling him bluntly that he “has no soul.”“We understand each other,” Biden says Putin replied.

As part of the agreement, Biden and Johnson will also work to reopen travel between the U.S. and U.K. as soon as possible. U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan confirmed the updated Atlantic Charter agreement aboard Air Force One while en route to the U.K. Wednesday for Biden's first trip abroad as president. “There'll be a refresher of the Atlantic Charter, which is now 80 years old,” Sullivan told reporters. And while the Atlantic Charter represents the latest chapter in the "special relationship" between Washington and London, the British government said this week that Johnson doesn't like that term. An aide told The Atlantic in a profile about Johnson that the prime minister thought the phrase appeared needy.

gives the pair an opportunity — and incentive — to work toward common ground as Johnson is eager for trade agreements. Johnson, until recently, was so unwaveringly close to Trump that it would seem hard for this not to color his relations with Biden. Back in 2019, after Johnson's Conservative Party won a majority in Parliament, Biden called the new British prime minister a "physical and emotional clone" of Trump. So Biden should be cultivating his relationship with Macron as carefully as the one with Johnson. These relationships across the ocean require constant reassurance, particularly in the wake of the four years of the Trump administration.

Mr. Biden and Mr. Johnson are expected to announce what is being billed as a renewal of the Atlantic Charter — the declaration of post-war cooperation that Prime Minister Winston Churchill and President Franklin D. Roosevelt laid out in 1941 during World War II. Mr. Biden opposed Britain’s drive leave the European Union, a push that Mr. Johnson helped lead. Mr. Biden and Mr. Johnson will meet on Thursday afternoon at Carbis Bay in Cornwall, before Friday’s meeting of Group of 7 leading industrial nations. Mildenhall, he called his weeklong diplomatic overture “essential,” saying that no nation acting alone could meet the world’s challenges. Mr. Biden also cast his trip in broader terms as an effort to rally the United States and its allies in an existential struggle between democracy and autocracy.

President Joe Biden arrived Wednesday in Britain for a series of meetings with world leaders intent on stressing the message of his first foreign trip as president: "The United States is back." The pandemic response and cybersecurity will be topics at the G-7 summit, Biden said. After the G-7 and NATO summits, Biden will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva, their first in-person meeting since Biden took office. Biden also underscored what he sees as a need to showcase the ability of democratic institutions to deliver results, particularly as autocracies rise. "We have to expose as false the narrative that the decrees of dictators can match the speed and scale" of 21st century challenges, Biden said.

"It’s a big breath of fresh air," Johnson said of a meeting that lasted about an hour and 20 minutes.

Of the doses, 200 million will be donated this year and 300 million across the first half of next year. COVAX's goal is to make 2 billion doses available to countries in need by the end of 2021. So far, approximately 81 million vaccines have been shipped to over 129 participants. The U.S. and other wealthy countries have been criticized for racing ahead in their vaccine rollouts as other, poorer countries struggle to obtain vaccines. When asked by reporters Wednesday morning before boarding Air Force One whether he planned to announce a new global vaccine strategy, Biden said, "I have one, and I'll be announcing it."

Amid all those challenges, America’s oldest allies are skeptical they have a partner they can trust after four years of the Trump administration’s "America First" foreign policy. The last time Trump met the G-7 leaders in person, in 2019, he threatened a trade war with France and pushed for Putin to be included in the group. One advantage Biden will have is his well-established relationships with a number of the leaders he will meet this week. In the near term, Biden will have to confront a world still struggling with the Covid-19 pandemic from economic and public health perspectives. Us, not themBeyond the pandemic, Biden and the world leaders are also expected to discuss steps they can take together to address climate change and the growing proliferation of cyberattacks.

Two hundred million doses — enough to fully protect 100 million people — would be shared this year, with the balance to be donated in the first half of 2022, the person said. "We're going to be the 'arsenal of vaccines' over this next period to help end the pandemic." The U.S. has faced mounting pressure to outline its global vaccine sharing plan. Overall, the White House has announced plans to share 80 million doses globally by the end of June, most through COVAX.

"Get ready for a lot of 'foreign policy for the middle class,'" a White House official said. Biden has aimed to execute a domestic foreign policy, one that ties refurbishing a bridge in northwest Ohio and expanding broadband to rural Indiana to countering threats from China and Russia. While former President Barack Obama's trips abroad centered on sweeping, thematic speeches outlining U.S. policy, Biden plans no major addresses. Biden's attempts to link foreign policy to his domestic agenda got a lift when G7 nations agreed to a 15 percent global minimum tax rate. Still, he said, Moscow is one challenge for which Biden's domestic foreign policy approach might face its limits.
