Jun 14, 2021 2 mins, 0 secs

President Biden on Sunday declared that "America is back to the table" after leaving his first Group of Seven summit, where world leaders vowed to confront China, boost global infrastructure and donate 1 billion vaccine doses to the rest of the world. .

Biden called the meeting, his first with the group since assuming the presidency, "extraordinary collaborative and productive," and said ending the coronavirus pandemic and ensuring an "equitable and inclusive" global economic recovery were the foremost priorities for the U.S.

In a 25-page communique issued on the last day of the three-day meeting, the leaders of the G-7 countries — the U.S., the U.K., Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan — committed to cracking down on the use of forced labor, fighting ransomware and combating corruption while calling out China and Russia for human rights abuses.

Biden left the summit Sunday morning and plans to meet with Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle on Sunday before heading to Brussels for meetings with NATO and European Union leaders.

The president told reporters he agrees with Putin that U.S.-Russia relations are at a "low point," but acknowledged there are areas in which the two countries can work together.

and the G-7 nations will "continue to work together including through our own available domestic means and multilateral institutions to protect individuals from forced labour and to ensure that global supply chains are free from the use of forced labour." The group also said it will "promote our values, including by calling on China to respect human rights and fundamental freedoms, especially in relation to Xinjiang" and Hong Kong.

"I think we're in a contest, not with China per se, but a contest with autocrats, autocratic governments around the world as to whether democracies can compete with them in the rapidly changing 21st century," Mr.

The seven nations, the wealthiest liberal democracies in the world, also pledged to sending 1 billion COVID-19 vaccine doses around the globe. Half of those will come from the U.S., Mr.

The G-7 allies also called for "a timely, transparent, expert-led, and science-based" Phase II study convened by the World Health Organization that examines the origins of COVID-19, including in China.

The president said it's crucial for the world to know whether the pandemic was a consequence of human contact with infected animals or the result of a leak from a lab in Wuhan, China.
