Ambassador Liu commended Tugendhat for his effort in the development of China-UK relations since taking office, saying that both China and Britain are at an important new stage of development, and the "Chinese Dream" and the "British Dream" complement each other. The two countries should seize the precious opportunity to work together so that China-UK cooperation could bear more "golden fruits" and deliver more benefits to the two peoples. The Ambassador said that China attaches great importance to the inter-parliamentary exchanges and cooperation with Britain, and stands ready to work with the UK to raise the level of inter-parliamentary cooperation and continue to enrich China-UK relations. He expressed the hope that the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Commons would play a constructive role in increasing people's understanding of China in the new era, and contributing more positive energy to consolidating the China-UK "Golden Era".

Tugendhat spoke highly of the relations between Britain and China, saying that the Foreign Affairs Committee is ready to play its role in enhancing inter-parliamentary exchanges and cooperation between the two countries and understanding of China among the people of all sectors in the UK with a view to sustaining the China-UK "Golden Era".

The two sides also exchanged views on global and regional issues such as the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue, Iranian nuclear programme, and climate change.
