The article above was written during Hu Jintau's state visit to the USA in 2011. The fact that the Chinese president is visiting the USA already signals the improvements between Americas relationship with China. With both countries now holding a great deal of political and economic influence they have been forced into a fairly uneasy relationship. As the article points out there are still significant ideological differences between the two countries. Certainly America still feels uneasy about Chinas human rights record and this was raised at the summit. The article points out that a third of the nations economy comes from these two countries. Both countries want this relationship to work. But it is still very complicated.
