But questions about human rights abuses, the growing trade imbalance between the two countries, and China's alleged influence in America's elections could disturb the summit's climate. Join Ray Suarez for a look at US-China relations and the implications of Jiang's state visit, on the next Talk of the Nation, from NPR News.
