President Xi Jinping’s trip to Europe has illustrated a shift in Chinese foreign policy, as well as a more direct engagement with the European Union. The “EU-China 2020 Strategic Agenda for Cooperation” consists of four pillars that will help guide China-EU relations in a positive direction that will not only benefit both China and the EU, but the world.

Per President Xi’s speech, all countries need to fulfill their obligations regarding nuclear security domestically and internationally.
