China backed India after the G7 nations criticised the decision to regulate the export of wheat. Hitting out, China said blaming developing nations like India won't solve the global food crisis. Last week, the Indian govt amended the policy by putting wheat export under the 'prohibited' category. China's state-run 'global times' reminded the G7 how India accounts for only a small part of global wheat exports. China said, if the West reduces exports, they'll be in no position to criticize India, a nation securing its food supply. Pertinent to note, India remains a reliable supplier as it is honouring all contracts.
