(The Diplomat, By Mercy A. Kuo) In the short to medium term, whilst the U.K. repositions itself away from the EU and refocuses internally – such as the negotiations with the EU and dealing with Scotland wanting a second referendum on independence – our influence in the world will be affected. Without the U.K. being a “buffer” in U.S.–U.K.–China relations and also within the EU, I suspect that China has temporarily lost an influential friend on the international stage.
