Chinese President Hu Jintao will visit President Obama's hometown on Friday, the last stop on his American tour before he heads back to Beijing around midday. Hu will visit a Chinese-owned auto parts firm, a Chinese wind energy company, and a Chinese cultural center. The Chinese president spent three days in Washington assuaging American fears about China's rise to global power, assuring U.S. leaders that his country "will never seek hegemony or pursue an expansionist policy." Hu was unapologetic about Tibet's political status, which he called a matter of Chinese territorial integrity and a "core interest." Sen. John Kerry was optimistic about the visit, however, saying that Hu's admission China has work to do on human rights was "the beginning of a move toward a more modern role" for the burgeoning Asian superpower.
