  • Description

    MR. P'EI CHIENG-TSANG, THE CHINESE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC NEW CHARGE D'AFFAIRES IN BRITAIN, IS ON A WEEK'S TOUR OF THE COUNTRY, TO FAMILIARISE HIMSELF WITH THE BRITISH WAY OF FILE. MR. P'EI SUCCEEDED MR. MA CHIA-CHUN IN DECEMBER AS HEAD OF THE CHINESE DIPLOMATIC MISSION IN LONDON.

    THE TOUR IS INTERPRETED AS A SIGN CONTINUING IMPROVEMENT IN DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS BETWEEN LONDON AND PEKING. RELATIONS HAVE BEEN STARINED SINCE THE PERIOD OF THE CULTURAL REVOLUTION IN 1967.

    MR. P'EI IS ACCOMPANIED ON THE TOUR (THOUGH NOT SEEN IN THIS FILM) BY HIS WIFE, WHO JOINED HIM IN BRITAIN RECENTLY. SHE IS THE FIRST DIPLOMAT'S WIFE TO COME TO BRITAIN FROM PEKING SINCE 1967, ANOTHER INDICATION THAT THE CHINESE INTEND TO TAKE A MORE ACTIVE PART IN DIPLOMATIC SOCIAL LIFE THAN IN THE PAST FOUR YEARS.
