New Chinese Leader Plans Trip to Moscow

Posted: Mar. 4th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Chinese new leader Xi Jinping has elected to travel to Moscow for his first foreign capital visit as president. This is a great honor for Moscow, as it will make history in china. After this visit president Jinping will immediately travel to South Africa for a summit.

BEIJING — The Chinese leader, Xi Jinping, has selected Moscow as his first foreign capital to visit as president, to be followed immediately by a trip to South Africa for a summit meeting of the group of leading emerging-market countries.

His predecessor, Hu Jintao, also chose Moscow as his first overseas stop after assuming office, but Mr. Xi’s journey to Russia has a special significance, analysts say. It comes as China tries to answer the Obama administration’s shift toward Asia, a policy that is viewed with suspicion in Beijing as an effort to contain China.
