A few years ago, a friend was assigned to an embassy in Beijing. He was told to explain to his family that they might come home and find someone at their computer, or going through their things. The proper response was to ignore this person, let them finish the job, and let them leave.

If it were me, I would ask the Chinese government agent if he wanted a beer. I would then ask him what he thought about North Korea.
