BEIJING, Sept. 8 - US Secretary of Defence Donald Rumsfeld will visit
China next month, Admiral William J. Fallon, commander of US Pacific
Command, said in Beijing yesterday.
It would be Rumsfeld's first visit to China since assuming office in
2001, but the specific timing and schedule has not been decided yet,
Fallon said.
Fallon is visiting China for the first time since taking over as Pacific
commander in February.
He held talks with Foreign Minister Li Zhaoxing yesterday afternoon
before heading to Shanghai and South China's Guangdong Province.
Rumsfeld's visit is expected to add momentum to the increased diplomatic
exchanges between China and the United States.
President Hu Jintao and his US counterpart George W. Bush are scheduled
to meet in New York next week during the United Nations 60th anniversary
According to Fallon, Bush will visit China following Rumsfeld's trip.
Fallon hoped that not only the top leaders but also people at various
levels could get to know each other well through increased exchanges. "It
will be helpful in reducing the tension," he said.
