french diplomacy

Brishen sent me this link, a BBC article about the body language of Chirac as he greets the leaders of the various African nations at the summit there. The verbal level of diplomacy mixed with the body-language level is fascinating. I’m going to have to watch for that more when various leaders meet. Although I suspect that it’s not nearly so developed in North American leaders — the subtlety of body language doesn’t seem nearly so important in our society.
