Obama, Hu will seek to re-set ties at state visit



WASHINGTON | Sun Jan 9, 2011 8:15am EST

(Reuters) - President Barack Obama and China's Hu Jintao will strive to put a rocky 2010 behind them and cast themselves as partners rather than rivals at a state visit this month between the world's two biggest powers.

But a trust deficit as big as the trade gap between Beijing and Washington may hover over the visit, even as Obama fetes Hu with a black-tie dinner and a 21-gun salute and holds talks with him on issues like North Korea and the global economy.

With the world still struggling with economic malaise and wrestling with grave environmental and security threats, the significance of the Chinese president's visit cannot be overstated. The January 19 event is being billed as the most important state visit in 30 years.
