My contribution to the European Parliaments” China debate (18.04.2023). My points: good to hear strong and clear voices in EUs China policy (von der Leyen) recently. Human Rights must be central. China is a revisionist power with hegemonic ambition. We need cooperation with like-minded partners (like the US) and mutual solidarity with democracies (including Taiwan). We must be a better partner for the Global South and must de-risk our economic relations. At the end, we should never confuse the Chinese people and the great Chinese culture and their successes with the dictatorship of the totalitarian Xi Jinping regime.
