The UK and the West must strike a balance in their relationship with China and stand ready to confront Beijing if necessary, said Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

"It’s very important that we remember that we have a huge economic relationship with China ... but at the same time, we’ve got to understand that there are areas where we need to compete, contest and sometimes challenge what China is up to.

There has to be a balanced approach and every country around that table can see that, but obviously one of the reasons why what is happening in Ukraine is so important is because there is a clear read-across to other theatres, and that’s why we’re sticking up to the rules-based international system in the way that we are," he said.
