British Foreign Secretary David Cameron met with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi at the Munich Security Conference on Friday, according to Reuters.

"China should use its influence on Iran to pressure the Houthi militants over their actions in the Red Sea," said British Foreign Secretary David Cameron.

Cameron also set out Britain's position on human rights issues in Xinjiang and Hong Kong, raised the case of British parliamentarians sanctioned by China, and again called for the release of media tycoon Jimmy Lai.

China's Foreign Minister expressed hope that relations between China and Britain would return to the right track.

"Two sides should make joint efforts to expand the convergence of interests and properly handle differences and contradictions to push their relations back on the right track," Wang Yi said.
