  • Description

    A seven-man diplomatic mission from the Chinese People's Republic arrived in Brussels on Friday (February 11th). The Chinese and the Belgians decided to establish diplomatic relations last October, and announced that it was hoped to exchange ambassadors within three months. But the Chinese mission now in Brussels is headed by a Charge d'Affaires -- Mr. Miao -- and the Belgian ambassador to Peking has not so far been named.

    SYNOPSIS: Arriving in Brussels on Friday -- a seven-man diplomatic mission from the Chinese People's Republic. The Chinese and Belgians established diplomatic relations last October and announced they hoped to exchange ambassadors within three months.

    Arrangements have fallen a little behind schedule. The Chinese diplomatic mission to Brussels is headed by a Charge d'Affaires -- Mr. Miao. And so far the Belgians have yet to name their Ambassador to Peking.

    At the time of the mission's arrival, a spokesman of the Belgian Foreign Affairs Ministry said that there was still one source of contention between the two governments which had to be cleared up. But that following diplomatic representations in Peking, this was being looked into by the Chinese authorities. The Chinese delegation in Brussels replaces Taiwan's diplomatic mission, which has already left Belgium.
