It is clear that greater cooperation between China and friendly nations is making many Western leaders nervous.

Analysts say US dominance is being eroded and a new world order is taking shape. The subject of EU-China relations has just been debated in the European Parliament.

A clear majority in the European Parliament claim Moscow and Beijing have malign ambitions. There are those, however, who warn against provoking China.

Western leaders always turn to sanctions when they disagree with a foreign government, but are personally insulated from the impact, experts point out.

A number of lawmakers are urging EU leaders not to follow the US down a destructive path.

Trade between the EU and China is currently valued at €2.3bn per day.

According to many economists, ordinary EU citizens will pay a huge price if the 27-country bloc falls in line with the anti-China agenda that is being developed and promoted by the United States.
