The Times and FT have reported on the initiative to send our five ambassadors from permanent Security Council countries plus UN and EU ambassadors to China for two days of talks. The readouts I have had are very positive – seeing the world through Chinese eyes opens our own eyes, and the meetings with government, party and civil society figures gave a unique chance to engage on big current issues (including Tibet) but also the long term relationship between China and the rest of the world. It is rare for Foreign Office Ambassadors to get enough time to talk to each other, but to do so from a different perspective is a very welcome first.
