NEW YORK - With the Republican primaries raging, the death of Whitney Houston and Obama submitting his 2013 budget to Congress on Monday, there has been plenty to compete for attention. But the visit by Vice-President Xi Jinping made major headlines in US mainstream media on Tuesday.
NEW YORK - A 30-second video welcoming Vice-President Xi Jinping was shown on the giant LED screen overlooking New York's Times Square on Tuesday, the day he met with US President Barack Obama and Vice-President Joe Biden.
Vice President Xi Jinping urged the United States to respect interests and concerns of China and other countries in the Asia-Pacific region while saying that China welcomes a constructive role by the US.
