Lib Dems urge Cleverly to think again ahead of China visit 

30 Aug 2023


This week's Government meeting with China's Minister of Foreign Affairs will be the first visit of any UK Foreign Secretary to China in five years. 

Commenting on James Cleverly’s planned visit to Beijing on Wednesday, Liberal Democrat Foreign Affairs spokesperson, Layla Moran said: 

“James Cleverly should think again about whether this is the signal the UK should be sending out.

“At this very moment China is perpetrating genocidal crimes against the Uyghurs, increasing aggressive activity towards Taiwan, and pursuing illegal bounties against Hong Kong pro-democracy activists in our country."
