US confirms state visit for China’s Xi
16 Septembar 2015, Nirapad News: The US has confirmed Chinese President Xi Jinping will be given a state welcome when he visits in September.
Xi’s visit comes after President Barack Obama’s trip to China in November last year.
The White House said Xi would be hosted at the White House for a state dinner on 25 September.
It will be ‘an opportunity to expand US-China co-operation’, said a spokesman, and to ‘address areas of disagreement constructively’, reports the BBC.
Xi is expected to travel to Seattle on 22 September before visiting Washington and New York, where he is due to give a speech to the UN General Assembly on 28 September.
Among the issues likely to be on the agenda for the visit is China’s increasing assertion of power over territory it claims as its own in the South and East China Sea.
