China: Travel by Ambassador Taylor (Taken Question)

Question: Is U.S. Coordinator for Counterterrorism Ambassador Frank Taylor traveling to Beijing?

Answer: The United States and China had productive counterterrorism discussions in Washington on September 25 for five hours. The discussions focussed on building a working relationship and laying the ground work for future meetings. The U.S. delegation delivered several points outlining topics and areas of cooperation, as did the PRC delegation. The atmosphere was positive and we are optimistic that we can move forward. Ambassador Taylor plans to visit Beijing at a mutually agreeable time, but he has no immediate plans to do so.
