Newsline: China’s top diplomat tours Europe

China’s top diplomat, Wang Yi, met with French President Emmanuel Macron at the start of his trip to Europe, amid renewed tensions between China and the United States. The French capital is the first stop on Wang’s tour of Europe. In the coming days, he will also travel to Italy, Hungary, Russia and Germany.

French Foreign Minister Catherine Colonna met Wang in Paris later in the day. Wang’s weeklong tour of Europe is seen as part of China’s efforts to restore ties with European nations at a time of rising tensions between the world’s two largest economies — China and the United States. He is expected to deliver a speech at the Munich Security Conference that starts on Friday.
