The issue of China is becoming a central issue in the British Prime Ministerial election

Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak, one of the main candidates for the new prime ministerial election that began after the resignation of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, recently discussed their political season through several debates. During this process, how to deal with China was one of the important topics for both.

Al Jazeera’s commentary on August 16 said that although many topics of intense conflict were raised during the discussion, their views on China remained largely the same. Both of them are emphasizing that they will implement a tough policy towards China if they become prime minister, and some analysts see this situation as “a sign that the “golden age” that lasted at least ten years in British-Chinese relations is coming to an end.” In particular, the repressive activities in China’s Hong Kong, Uyghur County, and other places, as well as espionage in the Internet sector, have become important reasons for their emergence.

Rana Mitter, a professor at Oxford University, said: “The current reality shows that regardless of who is the prime minister, the British government is clearly in a tough position for China.” This change in the attitude of the British government towards this important trading partner has not caused much attention and uproar at the moment.
