Visit demonstrates need for unified EU Approach to Dalai Lama and Tibet
Despite UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s conciliatory approach to the Chinese authorities and assertions that he had no plans to meet the Dalai Lama again, as his Beijing visit concluded last week the Chinese state media characterised Britain as an insignificant old country useful only ‘for travel and study’.
Prime Minister Cameron headed the largest trade delegation from Britain to visit China from December 2-4 following a period of diplomatic chill in UK-China relations, which the Chinese authorities blamed on a meeting in May 2012 between the Dalai Lama and UK Prime Minister David Cameron and his deputy Nick Clegg. But there was no evidence of an adverse impact on trade ties, and some figures showed an increase in trade with the UK since the meeting. The UK PM was strongly criticised in the British press for his approach to China, which several correspondents described as ‘humiliating’, with strong concerns being raised about his focus on trade to the detriment of core European values of human rights and democracy.
