The U.K. has a long history of working with its southern neighbor to facilitate its business, but it has not been quite as effective with the Chinese government.
With the arrival of a U.N. envoy in China last week, the two sides have opened a new front in the war of words that has been simmering for years.
On Wednesday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi welcomed a U,N.
official from the UK and a senior Chinese diplomat to Beijing.
The Chinese ambassador to the U, Jiang Yu, was also in attendance, according to the White House.
The two sides agreed to work together on “a range of issues,” including “cooperation in the implementation of the U-N Sustainable Development Goals and climate change,” the U and U.KS official said.
On Thursday, Tillerson met with Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying.
They discussed U.A.E. concerns, including concerns that the United Kingdom is trying to “pander to Chinese interests,” according to a U and UK official.
official added that Tillerson’s meeting was a “great step forward” toward closer relations between the two countries.
U.S.-China relations have become a major focus of the Trump administration, and the two nations have had a contentious relationship since the U!
president took office in January.
The two countries were in the midst of an economic crisis in May that caused U.B.C. to default on a $2.6 billion loan and prompted the resignation of U.C.-Breda President Joao Sousa.
In May, China also cut off U.W.C.’s financial lifeline, effectively halting a critical source of UB’s funding.UBS reported that U.D.C., U.U., and UB had all lost billions of dollars from their Chinese loans in 2016.
U.BS said that while U.
Bs debts were under control, U.
Ds debts were not.UBC was in the middle of restructuring its Chinese loans, and UBS said the UBS Chinese Bank had to write down UBCs assets to cover the losses and write off UBs liabilities.
UBS attributed the UBC debt restructuring to the increased leverage on its U.BW loan and the fact that UBC had not been able to renegotiate the loan.
