Cameron urges China to embrace democracy

David Cameron has called for closer trading ties between Europe and China – but said the UK still had “deeply-held concerns” over human rights, BBC said. Growing economic freedom should go “in step” with political reform to ensure prosperity, he told Beijing students. Acknowledging British society was “not perfect”, the prime minister insisted he was claiming no “moral superiority”. Ending the UK’s two-day trade mission, he urged China to further open its markets and correct trade imbalances.
