US 'microphone diplomacy' not helpful, says China
June 11 , 2015
A senior Chinese diplomat has said that differences between the United States and China over issues such as the South China Sea and internet security should be addressed in a “proper” way — and not by “microphone” diplomacy.
Wu Xi said that this would help make Chinese president Xi Jinping’s forthcoming visit to the US a successful one. She said that individual issues should not overshadow larger US-China ties and the two countries’ common interests.
