UK will continue to have constructive ties with Chinese firms, says PM’s spokesman

Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson speaks during the weekly question time debate in Parliament, in London

LONDON (Reuters) – Britain will continue to have a constructive relationship with Chinese companies working and investing in the country, but the strong ties between London and Beijing do not come at any price, a spokesman for Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday.

“We have a strong and constructive relationship with China in many areas … But this relationship does not come at any price. It has always been the case that where we have concerns we raise them, and where we need to intervene, then we will,” the spokesman told reporters.

“We’ll continue to have a constructive relationship with Chinese firms working and investing in the United Kingdom,” he said, adding that a review into the implications of the latest U.S. sanctions on Huawei will be completed shortly.
