An old Chinese saying goes that the whole year's work depends on a good start in spring, and that is what China has been trying to do with its latest charm diplomacy: President Hu Jintao's recently concluded visits to three Asian countries are becoming increasingly geopolitically important, namely the Republic of Korea, India and Cambodia.

Beijing has been demonstrating its determination to contribute more to international and regional mechanisms at recent summits.

President Hu delivered a keynote speech at the second Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul, elaborating China's position and the efforts it has made in the field of nuclear security and raising proposals for all participating countries to work together to realize the goal of universal nuclear security. He also met with US President Barack Obama and South Korean President Lee Myung-bak and exchanged views on regional and international affairs of common concern.
