After more than one year’s suspension of military ties between Beijing and Washington, the Sino-US military “strategic dialogue” will resume on December 9 when General Xiong Guangkai, Vice Chief of Staff for the People’s Liberation Army, will make a high-level visit to the Pentagon to meet his counterpart, Mr. Douglas Feith of the Defense Department.

General Xiong is likely to succeed Chi Haotian to become the next Minister of Defense in China, sources say. In August, when Deputy Secretary of State Mr. Richard Armitage visited Beijing, he met with General Xiong. This will be Xiong’s third trip to Washington.
