    The UK and China relationship has been strained in recent years amid rumbling rows over human rights abuses and the treatment of Hong Kong.

    She told the Conservative Party conference in Manchester: ‘We will also be tough on those who don’t share our values and don’t play by the rules.

    ‘It is important we trade with China, but we must make sure it is reliable trade, that it avoids strategic dependency and that it does not involve the violation of intellectual property rights or forced technology transfer.

    Ms Truss said Britain will ‘reach out to more countries who haven’t historically been aligned to Britainin order to ‘encourage a freer, more prosperous world’.

    The Foreign Secretary also took aim at the Labour Party after its members voted to condemn the AUKUS defence pact at their conference in Brighton last week.

    The deal was welcomed by Sir Keir Starmer and other members of the shadow Cabinet but the party’s grassroots voted overwhelmingly against it, claiming it undermines world peace.
