EU must resist Chinese attempts to divide it - Maas

BERLIN, June 13 (Reuters) - The European Union needs to come up with a strategy for dealing with China’s growing economic and political role, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said on Wednesday, including dealing with targeted attempts at dividing the EU.

“We need a common strategy for dealing with China’s power political ambitions,” he told a Berlin audience, “including for resisting targeted attempts at dividing us,” in reference to concerns at China’s growing role as a power-broker in central and eastern Europe.

He also expressed support for a French proposal for a European military intervention force, adding that Britain should be invited to participate even after leaving the European Union. (Reporting by Thomas Escritt)
