After meeting today with Hu Jintao in advance of the G20 in London, Obama accepted an invitation to visit China later this year:
The leaders agreed to "strengthen ties at all levels" ranging from the economy to fighting terrorism, and would expand consultations on "non-proliferation and other international security topics," the White House said.In January and February, China Beat ran a series of reading (and sometimes viewing) recommendations for the new president. [See installments 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.] Now that a trip is in the offing, perhaps someone who knows the president could bring the lists to his attention?
"The two sides agreed to resume the human rights dialogue as soon as possible," the statement said.
