The impressed Songtsan Gambo became all the more determined to have a matrimonial relationship with Tang. In 640, he sent his Prime Minister Lu Tongtsan to Chang'an to officially propose the matrimonial relationship to Emperor Taizong.

Songtsan Gambo trusted Lu Tongtsan not only because he was a resourceful military leader who had played a great role in the reunification of Tubo, but also because he was a steadfast champion of his policy to establish friendly relationships with neighboring countries.

Though impressed with Lu Tongtsan's elegant manner, Emperor Taizong refrained from acceding to Songtsan Bambo's proposal right away.
