PacNet #44 – Behind the Crawford Summit

China’s President Jiang Zemin will meet President George W. Bush at the latter’s ranch in Crawford, Texas Oct. 25. This is a high prestige event – relatively few are invited to Crawford, and President Bush will host Jiang there rather than hold the usual bilateral meeting with Jiang on the margins of the APEC Leaders Meeting that both are attending in Mexico.
