The Heat: China's growing global diplomatic reach

From Saudi Arabia’s King Salman in Beijing to China’s Premier Li Keqiang in Australia, China is growing its role in global diplomacy.

Saudi Arabia’s King Salman traveled to China with a large entourage this month where the two governments signed 35 deals worth $65 billion.

For a look at China’s growing role in global diplomacy, CGTN’s Wang Hui reports.
