UK's Hague outlines plan to strengthen diplomacy

Britain's Foreign Secretary William Hague says increasing the U.K.'s presence in emerging superpowers will help restore excellence to British diplomacy.
Hague on Thursday outlined his plans to revive the Foreign Office from what he called a weakened and diminished status.
He says diplomatic staff in India and China will grow significantly, while other countries such as North Korea also will see a stronger diplomatic presence.
Hague says greater emphasis will be placed on language skills for diplomats with the opening of a Foreign Office language center, and there will be added training in commercial diplomacy.
Hague also said the Foreign Office will capitalize on the expertise of retired ambassadors, who will help advise on foreign policy.
