President Gitanas Nausėda addressed President of the European Council, Charles Michel, and the incoming presidency, Prime Minister of Slovenia, inviting the European Union to consolidate its position on EU-China relations.

In his letter, the President draws attention to the need to consolidate positions of the EU member states on relations with China and stresses the necessity for joint action at the highest level in dealing with this global partner. It is now time for the European Union to assess the political and economic realities and prospects, the human rights situation in China, and to discuss a further EU-China relations strategy that will allow better coordination of positions and actions. 

A discussion on relations between the European Union and China is planned at the forthcoming European Council.
