Jeremy Corbyn has held what Labour called “cordial and constructive” talks with China’s President Xi Jinping at Buckingham Palace.
The Labour leader raised China’s human rights record and the impact of its exports on the UK steel industry, a party spokesman said.
The meeting came before a banquet at the palace, which Mr Corbyn attended.
He had pledged to raise human rights with President Xi during his four-day state visit to the UK.
