We pay close attention to the human rights situation in China, and consistently raise the range of our concerns with the Chinese authorities. We did so in detail at the most recent UK-China Human Rights Dialogue, held in Beijing in April. We raised the case of Liu Xiaobo and his wife Liu Xia immediately prior to the Dialogue.
