The Chinese President has told Britain he wants to see a united European Union.

It was an unusual intervention for Xi Jinping, who normally is reluctant to get involved in the internal affairs of other states.

The Chinese delegation is heading home after a four-day state visit, which drew criticism from campaigners concerned about Beijing’s record on human rights.

The Chinese delegation visited Manchester on Friday.

33 billion euros worth of deals have been signed here, to help create a “northern powerhouse” to challenge London’s dominance.

Several other multi-billion euro agreements were signed during the visit, including a controversial contract to build a nuclear power station on the south coast of England.

And, like many business deals, they were sealed over a pint in the pub.

The Plough in the nearby village of Cadsden.
