On March 18, 2019 local time, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi briefly met with Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Jeremy Hunt of the United Kingdom (UK) in Brussels.
Wang Yi expressed that recently, some high-level officials of the UK government have repeatedly expressed the UK's commitment to promoting the "Golden Era" of China-UK relations. It is hoped that the UK side will translate this positive commitment into concrete actions, properly handle issues affecting the sound development of bilateral relations and enhance mutual understanding and trust.
Jeremy Hunt noted that the UK side views China's development positively and is willing to see China playing a bigger role in global affairs. The UK stands ready to make joint efforts with the Chinese side to deepen the "Golden Era" partnership. Jeremy Hunt said that some specific differences should not hinder the overall development of bilateral relations.
