European Arms for China

The UK is carefully backing away from the longstanding push by the EU, led by Germany and France, to lift the embargo on selling arms to China.

It is the first signal from a government in response to this blog's campaign to make the EU reverse its arms-to-China policy. The UK recognises that China's announcement last week, that it will oppose Taiwan's wish for freedom with military force, means that the European approach needs to be reconsidered.
