UK at forefront of standing up forcefully for freedom and democracy, security and stability? | Commons Debate : 26th Jan 2022

Question by Rob Butler, Conservative MP for Aylesbury, response from Boris Johnson PM

Rob Butler, Conservative MP for Aylesbury asked the Prime Minister:

“Alongside the threat of a Russian invasion of Ukraine there are real fears of China invading Taiwan. On Sunday, Beijing staged the largest incursion into Taiwan’s airspace since October. Does he agree with me that military aggression and threat of occupation are never acceptable anywhere in the world and will he confirm that under this Conservative Government, the UK will always be at the forefront of standing up forcefully for freedom and democracy, security and stability.

The Prime Minister, Rt. Hon Boris Johnson MP, responded saying:

“The Chinese military flights that have taken place near Taiwan in recent days and months are not conducive to peace and security in the region. What we need is a peaceful and constructive dialogue by people on both sides of the Taiwan Straits and I know that that is what the Foreign Secretary and all colleagues are working for.
