China-Germany Ties Back on Track

Germany and China have agreed to resume regular talks on strategic foreign policy. The statement was made at a joint press conference of German and Chinese foreign ministers in Beijing. This is German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier’s first visit to China since Chancellor Angela Merkel's meeting with the Dalai Lama in Berlin last year put a strain on relations between Beijing and Berlin.
