Beijing Fires Warning Shot As Britain Reconsiders Ties to China

BEIJING – China-Britain relations weaken amid growing concerns among British politicians over the economic influence of China and Hong Kong.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s harsher stance reflects growing skepticism among parties, while Chinese diplomats have not contradicted media reports that Beijing would retaliate if Chinese business activities are limited.
Britain is experiencing one of its biggest geopolitical shifts in decades as it seeks a post-Brexit deal with the European Union.
In addition to pressuring Beijing to revoke a national security law plan in the former British colony, Johnson has said that he would offer 3 million Hong Kong people a path to British citizenship.
If the law is passed, Britain too is reviewing its plans to allow Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei to play a role in the country’s 5G network for security reasons and wants to form a (the G7 plus Australia, South Korea and India) to develop the technology.
The Johnson government is also reportedly considering new laws to step up the evaluation of Chinese investments for national security reasons, underscoring fears that British companies will be taken during the expected economic downturn.
Britain’s series of actions suggests it is ready to move a little closer to Washington’s decoupling approach to China, rather than the EU’s more conciliatory stance.
China has already warned Britain of the consequences of any action it takes.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told his British counterpart, Dominic Raab, that Britain must be “extremely cautious” about Hong Kong and not meddle in city affairs.
Meanwhile, China’s ambassador to London, Liu Xiaoming, told business leaders that Beijing viewed the Huawei affair as “decisive proof of whether Britain is a true and faithful partner,” according to The Sunday Times newspaper.
The report continued that Liu had warned that Chinese companies could withdraw from major infrastructure projects, including nuclear power plants and a high-speed rail line.
This week, Huawei launched a newspaper and internet campaign to commemorate 20 years of business in Britain.
The Chinese telecommunications company said it was “as committed as ever” to providing “the best equipment to the UK’s 5G full fiber and mobile broadband providers.”
Tom Tugendhat, chairman of the parliamentary committee on foreign affairs, said the British government would need to weigh its decisions against the country’s strategic interests and the need to defend the rules-based international system.
“Let us not pretend that the nuclear plant is a display of extraordinary generosity,” said Tugendhat, who also heads the new China Research Group at Westminster.
Lisa Nandy, a foreign affairs spokeswoman for the opposition Labor Party, called on the government to respond to threats from Chinese countermeasures by building “an alliance of democracies” to deal with “aggressive behavior and clear violations of international law.”
