Ambassador Liu Xiaoming Meets with New FCO Minister of State Nigel Adams

On March 5, Ambassador Liu Xiaoming met with Nigel Adams, new FCO Minister of State and exchanged views with him on issues of China-UK relations and common concerns.

Ambassador Liu congratulated Adams on his new position and briefed him on China’s effective measures and positive outcomes in handling the Covid-19 outbreak. He extended thanks to the UK for its sympathy and support to China, saying that in the spirit of building a community with shared future for mankind, China is willing to strengthen cooperation with the UK in combating the virus. The recent telephone conversation between President Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Boris Johnson pointed out the direction and mapped out the blueprint of the development for China-UK relationship, said the Ambassador. China and the UK should work together to deliver on the consensus reached by the two leaders, enhance top-level communication and mutually beneficial cooperation in such areas as trade, investment, finance, nuclear power, infrastructure, the BRI, and people-to-people and cultural exchanges, so as to produce more “Golden Fruits” for the “Golden Era” of China-UK relations. Ambassador Liu hoped that China and the UK would strengthen political trust, respect and accommodate each other’s core interests and major concerns, and address their differences properly, so as to make China-UK relations strong and enduring.

Adams said that Ambassador Liu was the first ambassador he had met since taking office, which fully showed the importance the UK attached to UK-China relations. He said, it is encouraging that China has achieved positive progress in containing the epidemic, and the UK is ready to work closely with the international community, including China, in vaccine development and medical research. Regarding the relationship between the two countries, he emphasized the importance of the recent telephone conversation between the leaders of the two countries. After Brexit, UK-China relations are facing new opportunities, Adams said, and the UK is ready to join hands with China to implement the consensus reached by the two leaders, promote high-level exchanges, deepen cooperation in the areas of trade, investment, finance, education, infrastructure and climate change, so as to create a more open and fair environment for UK-China cooperation and achieve more progress in UK-China “Golden Era”.
