"EU diplomats exude optimism when asked about China," wrote Katinka Barysch of the Centre of European Reform. "Chinese leaders, unlike most Russians and Americans, like and respect the European Union." … "Wishful thinking," was how European analyst Charles Grant termed Europe's China fixation. … Grant says "We have suffered more from yuan manipulation than the US."… the EU "should abandon the fiction of a 'strategic partnership' which cannot be meaningful when the values of the two sides are so different."
