EU, US note 'growing list' of China's actions of concern

The United States and the European Union discussed at their second high-level meeting "the growing list of China’s actions that are of concern, including those that breach international law and run counter to the shared values and interests" of the two sides. The issues raised at the meeting included human rights abuses and violations, disinformation sponsored or supported by Beijing, and China's "problematic and unilateral actions in the South and East China Seas and the Taiwan Strait."

Representatives from the US and the EU "reaffirmed the importance of protecting and building economic and technological resilience, diversifying and strengthening supply chains, and addressing economic coercion. They reiterated the importance of close EU-US cooperation to uphold the rules-based international order, including securing a level playing field for all countries. They also emphasized the importance of protecting intellectual property rights, critical infrastructure, and sensitive technologies, as well as information-sharing on tools to strengthen economic resilience, reduce loopholes and vulnerabilities, and shield against risks, including from non-market practices."
