Other Acts P6_TA-PROV (2007) 0622 (13/12/2007)

Type: Acts of the European Union: European Parliament resolution on the EU-China Summit and the EU/China human rights dialogue

Authority: European Authorities - European Union: European Parliament

Date: 12/13/2007

Subject: The European Parliament highlights that China's human rights record remains a matter of serious concern and emphasises, therefore, the need to considerably strengthen and improve the EU-China human rights dialogue. The EP calls on China and the EU to ensure a more balanced trade and economic partnership which should lead to sustainable growth and social development, in particular in the areas of climate change, environment and energy. The European Parliament urges, therefore, the EU to ensure that an improved trading relationship with China is contingent upon human rights reforms.
