German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas finished his trip to China looking ahead to Germany's seat on the UN Security Council beginning in 2019. He said arms control was a particular challenge for both countries to tackle.
Germany and China should work together in the United Nations Security Council to strengthen global security and fight climate change, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said on Tuesday.
Speaking in Beijing alongside Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, Maas said security and climate change were linked and could only be tackled by major powers.
Speaking on Tuesday, Yi warned against "listening to gossip or rumor." The camps, he said, were "an important part of the global fight against terrorism." A debate in the German parliament on Uighurs late last week prompted a critical statement from the Chinese Embassy.
