Former prime minister John Howard has made the point that Chinese president Xi Jinping likes Australia. With the relationship between Australia and China somewhat strained at the moment, Howard suggests that a face-to-face meeting between their respective leaders would be a good starting point in helping to ease tensions. He notes that the "turning point" in a 1996 dispute between Australia and China over naval rights in the Taiwan Straits was a meeting in Manila between himself and Jiang Zemin, China’s president at the time.
