China has pointedly cautioned Group of Seven leaders that the days when small groups of countries decided the fate of the world are long gone.

A spokesman for the Chinese embassy in London said China believes that countries, big or small, strong or weak, poor or rich, are equal, and that world affairs should be handled through consultation by all countries.

The Chinese spokesman said the only valid global system is the international order based on the principles of the United Nations and not the so-called rules formulated by a small number of countries.

Meanwhile,G7 leaders, seeking to rival China, have adopted a plan to support lower- and middle-income countries in building better infrastructure.

President Joe Biden said he wanted the US-backed Build Back Better World (B3W) plan to be a higher-quality alternative to a similar Chinese programme.
