Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian reminded his followers on Twitter that the people of the G7 countries are only part of the global community.
Legian published a picture showing that the population of the BRICS countries is about 3.2 billion people, while the number of people living in the G7 countries is much smaller – only 777 million people.
“The next time you talk about the ‘international community’, remember what it really means,” the diplomat added.
