United States President Joe Biden's plan to unite Washington's closest allies and take on China just scored a big political win. The G7 confronted China on just about every sore spot, from allegations of human rights abuses and forced labor in Xinjiang to ongoing political disputes over Hong Kong, Taiwan and the South China Sea. China still fired back against the statement, accusing the G7 of deliberately slandering China" and "arbitrarily interfering in China's internal affairs." Under Biden, the United States recently expanded a ban on American investment in dozens of Chinese firms. In his statement reported by Xinhua, the Chinese President said it was important to "maintain overall social stability and create a good atmosphere for the Party's centenary."

Novavax's protein-based COVID-19 vaccine candidate was more than 93% effective against the predominant variants of COVID-19 that have been of concern among scientists and public health officials, Novavax said. The vaccine was 91% effective among volunteers at high risk of severe infection and 100% effective in preventing moderate and severe cases of COVID-19. It was roughly 70% effective against COVID-19 variants that Novavax was unable to identify, Glenn said.

(CNN) The American biotechnology company Novavax announced on Monday that its coronavirus vaccine candidate was found to have an overall efficacy of 90.4% in a Phase 3 trial conducted across the United States and Mexico. The trial results appear consistent with the efficacy and safety profile the vaccine previously showed in a Phase 3 trial conducted in the United Kingdom, Dr. Gregory Glenn, president of research and development for Novavax, told CNN. "Different continent, different population, different viruses floating around, and yet, we still see really good efficacy," Glenn said. The study launched in December and enrolled 29,960 adults across 113 sites in the United States and six sites in Mexico. Some of the participants were given a placebo and some were administered two doses of the Novavax vaccine 21 days apart.

Northern Ireland's First Minister Arlene Foster looks on outside the Strand Cinema, as coronavirus disease (COVID-19) restrictions begin to ease in Belfast, Northern Ireland, May 24, 2021. Foster, who took power in 2016, was ousted in April after a majority of DUP lawmakers signed a letter seeking a confidence vote after many blamed her for mishandling Brexit negotiations. Foster resisted compromise on the terms of Britain's exit from the European Union when her party wielded huge power in propping up the government of former British Prime Minister Theresa May. The resulting Northern Ireland Protocol leaves Northern Ireland within the EU's trading sphere, avoiding a hard border on the island of Ireland but infuriating pro-British unionists by undermining the region's place in the United Kingdom.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson was seen correcting US President Joe Biden at this weekend's G7 Summit in Cornwall, England, after the president interrupted him to wrongly suggest that Johnson had failed to introduce South Africa's president at a roundtable of world leaders. It was not clear from footage of the incident whether Biden had not heard Johnson introduced President Ramaphosa or whether he was unaware of his name and therefore had not realized that Johnson had already introduced him.

Boris Johnson’s ‘Global Britain’ Makes Shaky Start at G7 Summit

It was the jarring intrusion of Northern Ireland into the proceedings. Mr. Johnson and Mr. Macron had a tense exchange over post-Brexit trade arrangements for the region. British officials are demanding that the European Union change the current system — designed to avoid new barriers between Ireland, an E.U. member state, and Northern Ireland — because it says that checks on some goods flowing from mainland Britain to Northern Ireland is driving a wedge between two parts of the United Kingdom. British newspapers reported that Mr. Macron suggested Northern Ireland was not part of the union.

LONDON — President Joe Biden and his fellow Group of Seven leaders agreed to donate 1 billion coronavirus vaccine doses to poorer countries over the next year, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson told reporters as the summit wrapped up on Sunday. But the commitment falls far short of the 11 billion doses the World Health Organization said are needed to vaccinate at least 70 percent of the world's population. A plan to offer developing nations an infrastructure scheme that could rival China's huge Belt and Road initiative was also on the agenda. Greenpeace U.K. accused Johnson of producing "reheated old promises" and said it would take "nothing for granted" until nations came up with the money. As the host of the summit, the U.K. was on a charm offensive, deploying the royal family to meet world leaders on Friday.

CARBIS BAY, England, June 13 (Reuters) - British foreign minister Dominic Raab criticised the European Union on Sunday for treating Northern Ireland as if it was a separate country rather than part of the United Kingdom, and that approach was causing damage to the British province. “Various EU figures here in Carbis Bay, but frankly for months now and years, have characterised Northern Ireland as somehow a separate country and that is wrong. It is a failure to understand the facts,” he told the BBC’s Andrew Marr programme.

"The president said that Toulouse and Paris were part of a single geographic area and that Northern Ireland was on an island," the Elysee Palace said after Britain's Telegraph newspaper reported that Macron had suggested Northern Ireland was not part of the United Kingdom. "The president wants to highlight that the situation was quite different and that it wasn’t right to draw this kind of comparison," the Elysee said. "He reminded (Johnson) that the UK’s exit from the EU was a British decision and that it was necessary to stick to the word given," the Elysse said. "The President then steered the conversation back to the key issues of the G7."

French President Emmanuel Macron stepped into the Brexit maelstrom on the sidelines of the Group of Seven summit by sparring with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson over the post-Brexit geography of the United Kingdom and France. Ultimately, the discussion keeps coming back to the delicate patchwork of history, nationalism, religion and geography that intertwine in Northern Ireland. "The president said that Toulouse and Paris were part of a single geographic area and that Northern Ireland was on an island," the Elysee Palace said. BREXIT RIDDLEThe EU does not want Northern Ireland to be a backdoor into its single market but will not accept a border between the province and the Republic of Ireland.

The G7 leaders want a "transparent" investigation into the origins of the coronavirus. The G7 also committed to giving 1 billion COVID-19 vaccine doses to countries in need. The Group of Seven (G7) leaders on Sunday expressed support for a "transparent" investigation into the origins of the coronavirus, while also seeking ways to better prepare for future pandemics. The international leaders are pushing for "a timely, transparent, expert-led, and science-based WHO-convened Phase 2 COVID-19 Origins study including, as recommended by the experts' report, in China." The G7 also committed to giving 1 billion COVID-19 vaccine doses to countries in need as they continue to weather the pandemic.

During the G7 summit, world leaders said they aimed to end the pandemic next year. Leaders laid out a plan to deliver at least 1 billion additional COVID-19 vaccine doses. Ending the pandemic next year would require vaccinating at least 60% of the global population, the G7 leaders said. Some 2.34 billion COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered as of Sunday morning, according to Johns Hopkins University. The G7 leaders said they have supported Covax — the global vaccine-sharing program led by bodies including the World Health Organization — as the primary method of delivering vaccines to the world's poorest countries.

Speaking at the end of a G-7 leaders' summit in southwest England on Sunday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the promised vaccine doses would come both directly and through the international COVAX program. Biden also wanted to persuade fellow democratic leaders to present a more unified front to compete economically with Beijing and strongly call out China's "nonmarket policies and human rights abuses." The leaders also said they will promote their values by calling on China to respect human rights and fundamental freedoms in Xinjiang, where Beijing is accused of committing serious human rights abuses against the Uyghur minority, and in the semi-autonomous city of Hong Kong.

The European Union told British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Saturday that he must implement the Brexit deal that he signed to ensure the delicate peace in Northern Ireland and that the 27-member bloc was completely unified on that position. "There is complete EU unity on this," she said, adding that the deal had been agreed, signed and ratified by both Johnson's government and the EU. The 1998 peace deal largely brought an end to the "Troubles" - three decades of conflict between Irish Catholic nationalist militants and pro-British Protestant "loyalist" paramilitaries in which 3,600 people were killed. French President Emmanuel Macron offered to reset relations with Britain as long as Johnson stands by the Brexit deal. The pro-British "unionist" community in Northern Ireland province say they are now split off from the rest of the United Kingdom and that the Brexit deal that Johnson signed therefore breaches the 1998 peace deal.
