EU suspends efforts to ratify investment deal with China amid ongoing sanctions row, Commission VP tells AFP
The EU has suspended its efforts to ratify a huge investment deal with China due to a row and a sanctions battle over Beijing's alleged human rights violations, the deputy chief of the bloc's executive branch has told AFP.
"We have for the moment […] suspended some political awareness efforts on the side of the Commission," vice president of the EU Commission, Valdis Dombrovskis, said in an interview with the outlet on Tuesday.
Dombrovskis said the situation created by the EU and China's tit-for-tat sanctions is "not conducive to the ratification" of the Comprehensive Agreement on Investment (CAI).
After six years of negotiations, the EU and Beijing agreed the CAI in principle at the end of last year, but it still required the ratification of the European Parliament.
