Chinese cancel Norwegian ministerial meeting. Norwegian authorities say China has cancelled a meeting with Minister of Fisheries and Coastal Affairs Lisbeth Berg-Hansen. Berg-Hansen landed in Shanghai today to visit Norway’s pavilion at Expo 2010, and was due to meet Chinese authorities for political talks in Beijing on Wednesday. The cancelled meeting is the official retaliation since the Norwegian Ambassador was called in last Friday following the Nobel Peace Prize Award to Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo.
