Chinese state-run media warned Tesla CEO Elon Musk that he was risking his relationship with China after he retweeted about the U.S. government’s “low-confidence” assessment that the Covid pandemic originated in a Wuhan laboratory.
Here, in this case, China decided to use state-run media to communicate with Elon Musk, but I am wondering if it may use diplomats? If they won't use diplomats, what kind of people China sends to be able to talk or send some message to a business person or private person like Elon Musk. Is there any official channel through which China can easily communicate with? What are the protocols and do you need some kind of permission?
