“We are in a position to never relent or cease standing up for our values, along with the values of open societies, democracy and human rights,” Raab instructed Sky Recordsdata.

“That requires us to determine a calibrated attain to China, but we favor a positive relationship where it’s imaginable. But we are in a position to never yield and we are in a position to never stop standing up for our values.”
