Simon Bridges said he was ‘amazed’ by China’s prosperity and also met Guo Shengkun, who is believed to have links to secret police
New Zealand’s opposition leader has been accused of hijacking the government’s foreign policy after displaying what China experts describe as an “alarming” attitude during a visit to Beijing, and meeting a politburo member believed connected to the secret police.
Simon Bridges spent five days in China last week and among his engagements was a meeting with politburo member Guo Shengkun, who was previously responsible for the ministry of public security. Guo is secretary of the powerful Central Political and Legal Affairs Commission, which oversees all law enforcement, including the secret police.
You can feel the prosperity
A privilege to be at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing to meet with Guo Shengkun to discuss the many areas our countries have in common and how we can strengthen ties. pic.twitter.com/HpX5yNaI2s
