Tensions with China Expected to Arise During Obama's Final Trip to Asia

What to expect from President Obama's final trip to Asia

Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes says President Obama will have a tough talk with President Xi on human rights, tensions around maritime issues in the South China Sea, cyber issues and some of the Chinese economic practices of concern, like theft of intellectual property.

Obama will meet British Prime Minister Theresa May for the first time Sunday on the margins of the summit, according to a White House official who said the two leaders will discuss a "range of bilateral and global issues."

The G20 summit kicks off Sunday afternoon with its first of five plenary sessions. Later, President Xi, playing host, will welcome leaders of the world’s top-20 economic powers with a banquet topped off with an elaborate cultural performance akin to an Olympic opening or closing ceremony.

On Monday, Obama will participate in four additional plenary sessions before ending his trip to China with a solo news conference.
