      On 2 September, Ambassador Liu Xiaoming met with President of the Royal Society, Sir Paul Nurse, who was planning to visit China soon. Minister Counsellor of the Science and Technology Section of the Chinese Embassy in the UK Chen Futao and Executive Director of the Royal Society Dr Julie Maxton attended the meeting.

      Sir Paul Nurse said that he was looking forward to visiting China.
