CORNWALL, U.K. -- The Group of Seven summit concluded on Sunday, with the leaders' closing communique vowing action on the pandemic and climate change while projecting a united stance on democratic values and a shared understanding of global challenges, including those arising from China.

In a first for the G-7, Taiwan garnered a mention in the communique, with China invoked in different areas of the leaders' concluding statement, which was based on three days of wide-ranging discussions held in Cornwall, England.
