From the New York Times (link):
WHEN Hu Jintao arrives in Washington this month for his first visit as China’s president, the two sides will already have come to an understanding on one of the most difficult issues. Not over trade or nuclear proliferation but on the protocol of what to call Mr. Hu’s visit.
The Chinese are calling it a state visit.
The Americans say it is not.
The two sides have agreed to disagree.
