China Cancels UK Human Rights Summit After Akmal Shaikh Execution

From Telegraph:

The UK-China Human Rights Dialogue is jointly organised by the Foreign Office and the Chinese Foreign Affairs ministry and has been running since 1997.

The meetings, which take place twice a year, are a key part of Britain’s “comprehensive approach” to human rights in China, according to the Foreign Office.

They offer a rare chance for British and Chinese academics, lawyers, judges and non-governmental organisations to meet and “increase understanding of human rights issues”.

The latest summit was scheduled to begin in Beijing on Monday.
