Bri­tain ‘must re­con­sider re­la­tion­ship with China’

The Daily Telegraph - - World News -

Bri­tain should re­con­sider its close re­la­tion­ship with China, a Con­ser­va­tive Party com­mis­sion will rec­om­mend in a re­port doc­u­ment­ing con­cerns over de­te­ri­o­rat­ing hu­man rights in Hong Kong and on the main­land. The re­port, to be pre­sented today by Lord Pat­ten of Barnes, the last gover­nor of the for­mer colony of Hong Kong, de­tails what it calls an “un­prece­dented” crack­down on free­dom over the past three years. It says Bri­tain’s re­la­tion­ship with China is not based on an “ap­pro­pri­ately crit­i­cal friend­ship”.
