China - Q&A from the press briefing (15 December 2022)


Q: On Monday, you mentioned a conversation between Ms. Colonna and her Chinese counterpart. Can you tell us a little more about the agenda and what the two of them will discuss?

A: We will come back to this discussion when it happens. It comes in the wake of the conversation between President Macron and his Chinese counterpart in Bali, on the sidelines of the G20 meeting. For the minister, it will mainly be an opportunity to discuss current international crises, beginning with the war of aggression in Ukraine and its repercussions. We will also discuss a whole range of issues with China related to global challenges, obviously in connection with the war in Ukraine and its consequences for food security, but also biodiversity and the environment, as China is currently chairing the COP15.
