A meeting long overdue – Anne Wu
While the world’s leaders gathered in New York this week for the United Nations summit, President Hu Jintao of China and President Bush finally had a chance at a long overdue meeting late Tuesday. Few Americans noticed that President Hu’s visit was postponed so the White House could address Hurricane Katrina.
The Hu-Bush summit ” the first public meeting in the United States since Hu took his post in 2003 ” provided an opportunity for American leaders to determine if China’s leader is friend or foe. Relations between the United States and China are precarious, to say the least.
