Bush, Hu to meet at crucial crossroad – Francesco Sisci

From Asia Times:

China’s President Hu Jintao is on his way to North Korea, where his task will be to wrest a clear commitment for nuclear disarmament from Kim Jong-il. This commitment should be brought to Beijing on November 8, when the next round of six-party talks is scheduled to start. If the talks make the US happy, Hu will have a clear sign of commitment and friendship to show to United States President George W Bush, who is due in Beijing around November 20.

However, this will not be the end of the story, but just the beginning as the US and China have a list of questions for each other, worries that go beyond the historic issue of Taiwan, which seems stable even if not resolved.
