ELMAU, Germany -- The Group of Seven wealthy democracies agreed on Tuesday to look into capping the price of Russian oil, while calling out China on human rights including alleged forced labor in Xinjiang.

The leaders of those countries highlighted these and other issues in a wide-ranging joint communique released as they concluded a three-day summit at the Schloss Elmau hotel in southern Germany. On the final day, they also announced additional support worth $4.5 billion to help developing countries cope with a deepening food crisis.
