Ambassador Liu Xiaoming Meets with Stanley Johnson, Former Member of the European Parliament and Vice Chairman of the European Parliament's Committee on Environment
2020/02/05

On February 4, Ambassador Liu Xiaoming met at the Chinese Embassy with Stanley Johnson, former Member of European Parliament, former Vice-Chairman of the European Parliament's Committee on Environment and former UN Ambassador of Convention on Migratory Species, and Mike Clarke, former Executive Director of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.

Ambassador Liu said that the current China-UK relations have maintained a good momentum. This year marks the fifth anniversary of the "Golden Era" of China-UK relations, and the relationship between the two countries is facing a new situation and new opportunities. This year China is going to host COP15 to the Convention on Biological Diversity, and the UK is going to host COP26 to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. These two conferences are great opportunities to promote international cooperation on climate change, environmental protection and wildlife protection. China is willing to work with the UK on both conferences, so as to achieve more "golden outcomes" for China-UK "Golden Era", and make more contribution to global environmental governance and the cause of peace and development of mankind.

Stanley Johnson said that in recent years China has scored remarkable achievements in environmental protection and ecological conservation, and has made outstanding contribution to addressing global climate change. Britain and China will host the COP26 and COP15 this year respectively, which will place the two countries in the leading positions in related fields. Prime Minister Johnson delivered a speech this morning, stressing the link between the two conferences, calling on countries around the world to achieve the zero-emissions target as soon as possible, and to address climate change and protect biodiversity. The British side is willing to work with China to strengthen exchanges and cooperation and jointly advance the process of global environmental governance.

Johnson also expressed his sympathy and support to the Chinese people who are fighting the novel coronavirus and his appreciation for China's efforts to fight the epidemic.

Ambassador Liu said that the Chinese government attaches great importance to fighting the epidemic and has adopted a series of strict prevention and control measures. General Secretary Xi Jinping presided over two meetings of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee, making important instructions and giving specific directions on many occasions for the prevention and control of the coronavirus outbreak. China appreciates the British donation of anti-epidemic materials, and the two sides have maintained close communication and cooperation on fighting the epidemic. Under the strong leadership of the Chinese central government and with the strong support of the international community, including the UK, China has the determination, confidence, and capability to win the battle against the virus!
