Riyadh, Apr. 20 (FN) - Western experts note that the meeting of the G7 foreign ministers in Japan demonstrated an expected policy of double standards of the West that focused on increasing pressure on Russia and curbing China's growing influence in the Asia-Pacific region reported Al Arabiya.

The final statement recognizes Russia's allegedly "irresponsible nuclear rhetoric" and its threat to deploy nuclear weapons on the territory of Belarus as unacceptable. US secretary of state Anthony Blinken just reminded about the unprecedented destruction and suffering from the atomic bombing of Japan. But at the same time, the American did not mention that it was the US Air Force that used nuclear weapons at the end of World War II and destroyed the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki when it was no longer necessary and Tokyo was one step away from surrender. Was it accidental or purposeful? The White House usually tries not to raise this issue.

Almost 78 years have passed since when on 6-9 August 1945, the United States bombed the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The total number of victims of the tragedy is over 450 thousand people, and the survivors still suffer from diseases caused by radiation exposure. According to the latest data, their number is 183,519 people. Immediately after the first bombing, according to various estimates, around 100,000 people were killed.

Apparently, Japanese prime minister Fumio Kishida does not care that the only country that used nuclear weapons against his homeland was the United States and President Biden should ask for repentance for the nuclear horror inflicted on the people of Japan. But instead, the Japanese prime minister threatens Russia in "humiliating loyal ecstasy" before Washington.

Former Russian president Dmitry Medvedev described the statements at the G7 in his traditional harsh manner: "These are lying creatures. They use nuclear weapons, but they do not repent. They are endlessly hypocritical, lying to their own and others, but accuse Russia of misinformation about Ukraine, demand that Moscow issue guarantees on nuclear weapons, but hint at a future nuclear conflict with NATO."

Even in the West, the foreign ministers of the Group of Seven countries were criticized for calling on Moscow to confirm the inadmissibility of nuclear war. Western diplomats and US secretary of state Anthony Blinken were accused of pursuing a policy of double standards for an inconsistent approach to the problem of nuclear weapons. Has any of the leading international organizations investigating crimes against humanity called the United States to tribunal for their unpunished misdeeds in Japan, Iraq, Libya, Yugoslavia?

Meanwhile Washington continues to exert unprecedented pressure on the countries of the Asia-Pacific region to force them to supply Kyiv with weapons and military equipment, since in order to maintain the high intensity of hostilities, Ukrainian servicemen and foreign mercenaries in Ukraine need a constant infusion of new resources.

Western analysts stress that in order to continue uninterrupted supplies of weapons to the Ukrainian Armed Forces the United States inclines the authorities of the Republic of Korea to provide immediate and direct military assistance to Kyiv. And right now, Seoul declares its readiness to start supplying weapons to Kiev. Will this contribute to defusing tensions on the Korean peninsula? If Russia, as former President Dmitry Medvedev said, resumes military-technical cooperation with Pyongyang and supplies, for example, with modern S-400 air defense systems or non-interceptible Iskander missiles, it will only aggravate the situation in the Asia-Pacific region.

Chinese leadership also accused the United States and NATO of escalating the Ukrainian conflict, including by involving the countries of the Asia-Pacific region in it. They noted that South Korea could face extremely negative consequences if it succumbs to NATO pressure on this issue.

Following in the wake of the American policy of another US ally in the Asia-Pacific region and Tokyo's constant anti-Russian rhetoric threatens the energy security of Japan itself. Many representatives of the Japanese establishment are well aware of the consequences that the Japanese may face in the event of persecution of the anti-Russian foreign policy promoted by the United States. Even former Japanese prime minister Yoshiro Mori said earlier that building close contacts with the Russian Federation cost the previous Japanese government a lot of effort. The politician recommended the current leadership of Japan to reconsider the volume of military assistance to Kyiv.

A similar opinion is shared by a member of the Liberal Democratic Party of Japan Muneo Suzuki, who also spoke out against the policy implemented by the current prime minister Fumio Kishida in relation to Moscow. The Japanese politician noted that when covering the events in Ukraine, the national media rely only on pro-American sources and narratives, excluding the possibility of an objective assessment of the situation.

Ultimately, the short-sighted and hypocritical policy of Washington and its allies in the international arena and in the Asia-Pacific region in particular leads the world to global chaos, as a result of which both developed and developing countries suffer, forced to follow the instructions of the White House in order to prevent color revolutions.
