China: U.S. relations analyzed

The opening editorial for this week's issue of the Chinese-language, internet-based, international politics-analyzing Far & Wide Journal takes a quick look at the diplomatic buildup to Chinese president Hu Jintao's visit to the United States this week, past visits of Chinese leaders and Bush's visit last month to India.

“Compared with Deng Xiaoping as well as Jiang Zemin's first visits to the United States, dealing with China-U.S. relations is even more complicated for [current Chinese president] Hu Jintao. While the majority of people's sights will be focused on the issues of trade and the Renminbi, America's policies towards China are in fact still not clear. The U.S. still hasn't figured out how to get along with such a large country still in the process of coming into its own,” writes F&W researcher Lu Nan. [zh]
