China: U.S. Official To Discuss Nonproliferation

Washington, 23 October 1996 (RFE/RL) -- The State Department says a senior U.S. official is scheduled to travel to China early next month to discuss a "full range of nonproliferation and security issues" with officials in Beijing.

Spokesman Nicholas Burns said yesterday that Undersecretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Affairs Lynn Davis will be in Beijing November 4 and 5 to prepare for a visit to China later that month by Secretary of State Warren Christopher.

Burns noted that Christopher's trip to China, scheduled for November 21 and 22, will be the first visit by a senior U.S. cabinet level official in almost three years.
