EU-China: summit in the shadow of war
It has been almost two years since representatives of the European Union and China gathered for a summit meeting. In 2021, the meeting, which was actually scheduled annually, was canceled, and possible dates were repeatedly postponed. The online conference on Friday, however, now comes at an inopportune time for both sides. The 27 EU member states are "reconsidering" their relations with Beijing in a "new global context". The reason is China's reluctance to condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The Ukraine war will thus dominate the meeting.
