BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union’s chairman told Chinese President Xi Jinping on Monday that the bloc would no longer be taken advantage of and demanded a fairer relationship in trade.
“Europe needs to be a player, not a playing field,” European Council President Charles Michel told reporters following a video summit with Xi.
“We want more fairness. We want a more balanced relationship that also means reciprocity and a level playing field.”
