“I gave him this beautiful book” – Mr. Shanahan said, one day after meeting with Wei and his senior team at the Shangri-La Dialogue held in Singapore – “I say this is a field where both you and me can cooperate ”.
An unnamed US official revealed that Wei was at first surprised to find out he had gifts from his American counterparts. Immediately after knowing what the gift was, China’s Defense Minister immediately turned his face and handed it to his subordinates.
