The man likely to become China's next leader, Vice-President Xi Jinping, is set to begin a closely watched visit to the United States.
In comments to the Washington Post ahead of his trip, Xi sounded a note of warning to the US over its military stance in the Pacific.
He said scaling up military activity was not what countries in the region wanted to see.
He will meet President Barack Obama at the White House on Tuesday.
Anchor Marco Werman gets a preview of Xi's trip from The World's China correspondent Mary Kay Magistad.
