Baerbock: China strategy must not repeat mistakes with Russia
German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock wants to stop Germany's years-long policy of "change through trade," which she said has failed spectacularly in Russia and China. "Trade is not automatically followed by democratic change," Baerbock said at the Economics Day of the 20th Conference of Heads of German Missions Abroad on Tuesday at the Federal Foreign Office in Berlin. The mistakes made in dealing with Russia must now be taken into account by the German government when drafting a German China strategy, she said.
