Tibet Talks Europe #7: Implications of Minister Wang Yi’s visit to Europe and of EU-China leaders’ meeting on Tibet
Chinese Foreign Affairs Minister Wang Yi embarked on a European diplomatic tour during the last week of August, making stops in Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, France and Germany.
Following his tour, on 14 September, an EU-China leaders’ meeting took place via video conference, chaired by President Michel on the EU side and President Xi on the Chinese side.
How do parliamentarians from the countries Minister Wang Yi visited assess the visit? What does it and the EU-China leaders’ meeting mean for EU-China relations and for effective diplomacy on Tibet?
This episode of Tibet Talks Europe will explore these questions with members of Parliament from France, Norway, the European Parliament and the Netherlands.
