A cartoon mocking the G7 leaders that depicts Australia as a money-grabbing kangaroo has gone viral in China.
The image, titled "The Last G7" was posted on social media site Weibo by cartoonist "Bantonglaoatang", English-language paper The reported.
The Times, which is controlled by the Chinese Communist Party, said the image revealed the "evil intentions of the West that tries to lay a siege to China".
The cartoon itself parodies Leonardo da Vinci's famed The Last Supper, with the G7 nations, along with Australia and India, personified as anthropomorphic animals.
As well as Australia's kangaroo, there is a bald eagle for the US, a lion for the UK, a beaver for Canada, a rooster for France, an elephant for India, a wolf for Italy, a shiba inu dog for Japan and a black hawk for Germany.
The Global Times quoted vlogger "sharp tongued pumpkin" in saying that the kangaroo symbolised "double-faced Australia" in its eagerness for Chinese trade alongside its US alliance.
Japan's dog is pouring glowing green water into everybody's cups from a kettle marked with a radioactive warning symbol, while India's elephant is on a medical drip.
Other elements include a roll of toilet paper being printed into US currency, a cake with a map of China on it, and a leaping frog which observers believed represented Taiwan.
Above the figures is the caption, in English, "Through this we can still rule the world".
The G7 summit, which was held in Cornwall in the UK, saw the heads of some of the world's biggest economies meet to discuss a range of international issues, including COVID-19 and climate change.
The invitations issued to Australia and India were seen as part of a broader strategy to discuss the rise of China and its confrontational actions in the Indo-Pacific region.
"With regard to China, and competition in the global economy, we will continue to consult on collective approaches to challenging non-market policies and practices which undermine the fair and transparent operation of the global economy," the group said in its communique, published yesterday.
The leaders said they would promote their values by calling on China to respect human rights and fundamental freedoms in Xinjiang, where Beijing is accused of committing serious human rights abuses against the Uyghur minority, and in the semi-autonomous city of Hong Kong.
