«China and Russia Must Not Be Post-Covid Winners, U.K. Envoy Says»: «China and Russia must not emerge as the winners from the coronavirus pandemic, Britain’s ambassador to the U.S. said, as she urged the West to show that more open societies thrive. In an interview with Bloomberg television, Karen Pierce said the U.K. and the U.S. will need to work closely to counter the strategic challenge of China and Russia as the world recovers from the pandemic. She highlighted the risk that China, in particular, could set the rules for future technological developments in areas such as artificial intelligence, likening it to the spread of nuclear technology in the 1950s. «We don’t want to wake up one day and find that there’s Chinese standards on things like AI and cyber», Pierce told Bloomberg TV’s Francine Lacqua on Thursday. That would be «too authoritarian» and new technologies must benefit «open markets», she added. «The second big challenge is the strategic competition from Russia and China, particularly China», Pierce said. «We need to get that right again so that it’s open societies that are seen to thrive and recover from the covid pandemic»» (+ обсуждение в ЖЖ «Британский дипломат проговорилась»).
