German Foreign Minister Annalena Burbock visits China to “establish the truth” in relations with China, as well as to clarify the EU’s position on Taiwan after the visit of French President Emmanuel Macron, who said that the EU should not be drawn into the conflict between China and the United States, reports the newspaper Politico.
The official foreign policy representative of the Social Democratic Party of Germany, Niels Schmid, said the purpose of Burbock’s visit to China was to repeat the change in policy towards Beijing announced in the coalition government agreement.
SPD Foreign Policy MP Metin Hakverdi said Macron’s statements had given the impression in America that Europeans see China and the United States as “equidistant” from Brussels in terms of values and alliances.
“Macron has potentially disrupted the peaceful status quo around Taiwan by creating the public impression that Europe has little interest in the conflict,” Hakverdi said.
Hakverdi also said that Burbock was able to impress on the Chinese side that the Taiwan issue is not an internal PRC matter.
Earlier it emerged that former British Prime Minister Liz Truss intended to accuse Western leaders who recently visited China during a visit of weakness for their attempt to improve relations with China. due to the conflict in Ukraine.
