China and the European Union must “unite and cooperate” against global uncertainties, based on statements made by Chinese Premier Li Qiang on the sidelines of the G20 summit in New Delhi.
“Risk prevention does not preclude cooperation; interdependence should not be equated with insecurity,” Li told European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.
The Chinese premier urged the bloc to create a non-discriminatory environment for Chinese companies and added that China is willing to strengthen dialogue and cooperation in areas such as clean energy and green finance, Reuters also quoted a statement from the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Li attended the summit as a representative of President Xi Jinping, who was not present.
In June, the EU adopted a “de-risking” strategy to manage its dependence on the Chinese economy.
