Great Britain should not repeat in relations with China those mistakes that it made in relations with Russia. This was stated by British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss during an election debate with former Treasury Secretary Rishi Sunak.

“In my opinion, we should not repeat the mistakes that we made with Russia, becoming strategically dependent on it from Russia»,— she emphasized (the broadcast was hosted by the BBC).

Truss stressed that her department has taken a tough stance against “authoritarian regimes.” So, she said that she intends to “finish” with China's TikTok app.

Sunak and Truss accused each other during the debate of being too close to Beijing in the past.

Earlier, Truss drew attention to the fact that the British accuse Rishi Sunak of being soft on Russia and China, including being cautious about sanctions. Against this background, she promised that she would present herself as a “hawk”; in relation to Russia and China in the struggle for the post of prime minister.

The head of the British Foreign Office also noted that the country is now facing a global economic shock due to the pandemic and hostilities in Ukraine. The country is at a turning point, she said: either it will continue to exist as usual, or it will be brave and start to change. Truss has described herself as a “rebel” because she wants to “make a difference”.
