unstar this property answer text <p>Since the UN High Commissioner of Human Rights' statement on 11 September, our Ambassador has raised the situation in Rakhine with Burmese Ministers and has set out our concerns about the violence, the large scale displacement of civilians, and the need for improved humanitarian access. The Foreign Secretary had earlier spoken to State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi on 7 September in similar terms and to underline the need for any allegations of human rights abuses to be investigated. Subsequently, at his press conference on 14 September, the Foreign Secretary described the situation in Rakhine as an “abomination”, and urged the displaced Rohingya to be allowed back and for the abuse of their human rights and killings to stop.</p> more like this

Friends the Secretaries of State for Health (Mr Hunt) and Education (Ms Greening) discussed gender equality, women’s empowerment, and female education and employment rights with Chinese ministerial counterparts. Women’s empowerment will continue to be a key theme for this year’s ‘People to People’ Dialogue. Our Ambassador in Beijing, Dame Barbara Woodward, is a patron of ‘Inspiring Women China’, and launched a series of events in schools across China in March this year. Planned UK projects in China have girls’ empowerment as a key outcome.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>​UK-China cooperation on climate change and energy is a key pillar of the bilateral relationship: our work includes policy, technology, commercial and research collaboration. The UK's Natural Environment Research Council and the National Natural Science Foundation of China are working together to monitor concentrations and varieties of airborne particles and volatile gases in the atmosphere, and their potential impact on human health. The UK continues to provide strong support for the development of China's national emissions trading scheme which will cover 10% of global emissions. Since 2015, the UK's Climate Change Committee and their counterparts, China's Expert Committee on Climate Change, have been collaborating to identify the key risks posed by dangerous climate change to areas such as food security, human health, infrastructure and global supply chains.</p> more like this

I made clear the UK's strong commitment to the Sino-British Joint Declaration: a recognition that it remains a legally binding treaty until 2047, is registered with the UN and continues to be in force. The Foreign Secretary, my Rt Hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), also discussed Hong Kong issues at a meeting with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on 16 February 2017.
