China Confirms Obama State Visit Next Week

BEIJING – U.S. President Barack Obama will make a state visit to China on Nov. 10-12 and attend the 22nd summit of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, APEC, in Beijing, China said Monday.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Qin Gang announced the visit in a statement and said that Obama would meet President Xi Jinping.

The two leaders will exchange views on bilateral relations along with regional and international issues of common interest, said Gang, without specifying details.

The bilateral meeting between the leaders of the world’s largest economies is the second since they met in 2013 during Xi’s American tour.

Although they had agreed then to take relations to a new level, both positions have converged in some ways but still maintain a tense attitude over issues such as cyber espionage, Russia’s involvement in eastern Ukraine and their respective influence in the Pacific, among others.

Other issues that are expected to be discussed are U.S. strategy against the Islamic State jihadists in Syria and Iraq, the Iranian nuclear dispute and the withdrawal of NATO troops from Afghanistan, an issue in which they could find greater consensus, diplomatic sources said.

Entitled “Defining the Future through the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation” the bilateral meetings of the APEC member countries are to begin in Beijing on Nov. 5 and will end on Nov. 11.

Xi, who will chair the summit, will also hold parallel meetings with other leaders of the APEC member countries.

An unprecedented meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is also being discussed.
