U.S., Chinese Military Officials To Meet Next Week
Top U.S. and Chinese military officials will meet next week to discuss North Korea and maritime conflicts with the aim of improving cooperation between Beijing and Washington, the Pentagon said on Friday.
Pentagon policy chief Michele Flournoy will meet with Lieutenant General Ma Xiaotian, deputy chief of general staff of the People’s Liberation Army, in Beijing on June 23 and 24, a senior Pentagon official said.
“North Korea will factor in very strongly,” the official said. “We’ve learned that there’s a lot of common interest here in international consensus to moderate North Korean behavior.”
