Expo diplomacy

Sarkozy's visit comes at a time when China is engaged in "expo diplomacy," a concept first raised by Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi in early March during the annual gathering of China's top leadership.

"The World Expo is a good platform and opportunity for leaders of all countries, including President Sarkozy, to showcase their countries' achievements in all aspects and improve their relations with China," Chen said.

The 2010 World Expo will run from Saturday through October 31 under the motto "Better City - Better Life."

China said that more than 190 countries and regions, as well as more than 50 international organizations, have registered to participate in the Shanghai World Expo, and about 70 million visitors are expected to attend the event.
