UK and China relationship 'seriously poisoned': Beijing's envoy 

 

The relationship between UK and China has been "seriously poisoned", says Bejing's ambassador to London.

In a lengthy press conference, rebutting criticism of the Chinese government, Liu Xiaoming said UK was at a "critical historical juncture" in its future with his country.

The ambassador urged UK to "resist pressure" from US to condemn China.

He rejected accusations of human rights violations against Uighur Muslims in the Xinjiang region.

The UK and China have had a number of political disputes in recent months, including over the banning of technology firm Huawei from the UK's 5G mobile network and the new security law imposed in Hong Kong.
