Top EU diplomat says China counter-sanctions ‘unacceptable’

European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell slams retaliatory sanctions by Beijing as “unacceptable,” after the bloc targeted four Chinese officials over the crackdown on the Uighurs.

“Rather than change its policies and address our legitimate concerns, China has again turned a blind eye and these measures are regrettable and unacceptable,” Borrell says after a meeting of EU foreign ministers.

“There will be no change in the European Union determination to defend human rights and to respond to serious violations and abuses.”
