Britain has ousted China General Nuclear (CGN) from the construction of its new Sizewell C nuclear power station. Instead, London would form a joint venture with remaining French partner EDF with the UK investing £700 million in the project. The announcement came after Prime Minister Rishi Sunak warned the "golden era" of UK-China links was "over." The move also came amid a diplomatic storm over the arrest and alleged assault of a BBC journalist covering protests in China. Sunak’s announcement nevertheless further curbs UK’s economic ties with China, the world's second-biggest economy. Sunak also echoed his predecessor Liz Truss’s foreign policy review where she was reportedly planning to re-categorise China as a "threat."
