UK needs "eyes wide open" approach to China, Sunak says

Fri, 7th Aug 2020 08:33

LONDON, Aug 7 (Reuters) - Britain should have an "eyes wide
open" approach to its relationship with China and remain robust
in standing up for its values, finance minister Rishi Sunak said
on Friday.

Relations between China and Britain have been strained in
recent months over Hong Kong and the role of China's Huawei in
Britain.

Asked by LBC Radio if President Xi Jinping was a reliable
partner, Sunak replied: "We should have an eyes wide open
relationship with China, obviously it's important to us in many
ways, because of the supply of things and as a trading partner.

"We should be eyes wide open about where we have differing
values and interests and we should be robust in standing up for
those things and protecting ourselves."
