Former Finance Minister Vows to Get Tough on China as PM

It is reported on July 25th, that after the resignation of former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the former Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak who participated in the campaign promised to get tough on China if he becomes Britain’s next prime minister. He said the Asian superpower is the “number one threat” to both the British and global security.

Sunak has proposed closing all 30 Confucius Institutes in Britain and to kick the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) out of universities. This will be done by forcing higher education establishments to disclose foreign funding of more than $60,000 and reviewing research partnerships. In addition, the MI5’s spy agency would be used to help combat Chinese espionage and he would seek to build “NATO-style” international cooperation to tackle Chinese threats in cyberspace. Sunak would also bar China from acquiring key British assets, including strategically sensitive tech companies.

The CCP’s global “belt and road” scheme has burdened developing countries with insurmountable debts. Sunak criticized British and Western politicians for turning a blind eye to the CCP’s evil ambitions, and he promised to change this on his first day as British Prime Minister.
