2 top Obama advisers on way to China

BEIJING, Sept. 4 (UPI) -- Talks between two of President Obama's top advisers and Chinese officials will cover monetary policy and national security, the White House said.

Deputy National Security Adviser Thomas Donilon and National Economic Council Director Lawrence Summers will be in Beijing from Sunday to Wednesday for meetings with Vice Premier Wang Qishan and State Councilor Dai Bingguo, China Daily reported. Their discussions will include a "wide range of issues touching on bilateral and international issues," U.S. officials said.

China's valuation of the yuan is a longstanding issue between the two countries. U.S. arms sale to Taiwan in January and differences over Iran and North Korea also have increased tension this year.

"Although it is difficult to see a full recovery of Sino-U.S. relations any time soon, this dialogue will benefit both countries," said Shi Yinhong of Renmin University of China.
