Germany's ties with China could change fundamentally - SPD leader

Germany would be forced to cut ties with China in the way it has with Russia should China attack Taiwan, Qazet.az reports according to the leader of Chancellor Olaf Scholz's Social Democrats (SPD) on the weekly Die Zeit in comments published on Wednesday.

Germany is working on a new China strategy that takes a more sober view of relations and aims to reduce dependence on Asia's economic superpower.

"We must realise that tomorrow, the day after tomorrow or in 10 years' time, the time may come when China crosses borders," Lars Klingbeil told Die Zeit.
