In a draft resolution, tabled for a vote on Wednesday, MEPs also say that the strategic partnership between the EU and China must be strengthened in today's multipolar and globalised world and call for talks to be accelerated on a new partnership and cooperation agreement "based on trust, transparency and respect for human rights."
