The group is led by Tom Tugendhat, chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Commons of the British Parliament and a member of the Conservative Party. Tugendhat severely criticized China's response to the new corona virus epidemic, saying Beijing had downplayed the outbreak early in the virus outbreak.
But Tugendhat said that this parliament's ‘China Research Group’ will not ‘anti-China’.
He also said that the parliamentary group will ‘explore opportunities to engage with China’ and study China's economic goals.
The Conservative MP from Tonbridge and Malling also said, ‘The coronavirus crisis highlights the urgent need to better understand China’s position in the world and our economy with China. And diplomatic contacts.’
Tugendhat condemned the Communist Party of China for putting its own political power on the lives and deaths of the people during the outbreak of the new covid-19 virus.
He said, ‘Beijing's long-term suppression of information transparency has led to the continuous development of this crisis. The Communist Party of China is using the current emergency to build influence around the world.’

‘Fake Data’

On Friday, Tugendhat, chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Commons of the British Parliament, condemned the Chinese Communist Party for putting the safety of its regime above the life and death of the people during the outbreak of the new crown virus.
He stated on the BBC Radio 4 program: ‘It is not the CCP that has targeted the CCP, it is not that they do not have enough data, but that they deliberately forged the data.’
Although China has been praised by the World Health Organization for handling the new covid-19 epidemic, many people, including US President Trump, have accused the Chinese authorities of manipulating information and failing to issue sufficient warnings to other countries regarding its seriousness.
Chen Wen, Minister and Chief Librarian of the Chinese Embassy in the United Kingdom, defended China's response to the outbreak of the Wuhan epidemic. She said that ‘closing the city’ reduced the spread of the virus to other countries by ‘77%.’
‘The Chinese have paid a high price for this,’ she added.

‘Political motivation’

When accused of spreading false information about the source of the virus, Chen Wen, the Chinese embassy in the UK, said that this statement ‘may be as dangerous or even more dangerous as the virus itself’, and ‘unity and cooperation’ is the only way to defeat the virus.
She responded to the call for an international investigation into China's response to the virus outbreak, saying that this behavior was ‘politically motivated’ and would not ‘have any benefit’ for anyone.
Tugendhat said that the new team he led to set up would examine not only the epidemic, but also China ’s long-term economic and diplomatic goals. This parliamentary group also has eight other members of the Conservative Party, including former cabinet minister Damian Green.
The British government had a dispute when it decided to allow Chinese technology company Huawei to enter the UK 5G network. The team will focus on the possible consequences of the new technology and who will ultimately control the technology platform.
The team will also study China's foreign policy, especially its relationship with the poorer regions of the world.
