Chinese President in US
Chinese President Hu Jintao has arrived in the United States .
Mr. Hu's first stop on his four-day American visit was to the northwestern state of Washington, where he held talks with Bill Gates, the chairman of computer software giant Microsoft. Later Tuesday he is to attend a dinner with 100 business, government and community leaders to be hosted by Washington State Governor Christine Gregoire.
On Wednesday, he is scheduled to tour a Boeing commercial aircraft plant before heading to Washington, D.C., for a meeting with President Bush.
Many storefronts in Seattle's Chinatown hung Chinese and U.S. flags to greet Mr. Hu, but there were also demonstrations by dozens of Taiwanese, Tibetan and Falun Gong advocates.
