Abbott's Nixon in China moment

If the Prime Minister has any hope of securing an FTA with China, he will have to go out in front of public opinion on a number of sensitive issues.

Mr Abbot’s visit to China in early April will be the biggest diplomatic challenge of his premiership so far. But it won’t be because of the various minefields over China-Japan relations and Australia’s role in all of this that have dominated the airwaves so far. Abbot’s team, and the Chinese side, will be well prepared to avoid some of the misunderstandings that have happened since last year. Enforced harmony will almost certainly prevail in public.
