Vice President Biden to visit China, Mongolia and Japan

Washington (CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden will depart on August 16 for a trip to China, Mongolia and Japan that will include meetings with China's top leaders, the White House announced Thursday.

The trip to China is at the invitation of Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping as part of planned reciprocal visits by the two nations' top deputies announced earlier this year, the statement said. Xi is considered the likely successor to President Hu Jintao.

    I think this trip has more to due with the irresposible behavior that has happened in Congress these past few months. I suspect the Chinese need assurance that the markets will stabilize and wonder what we're going to do with our dysfunctional Congress and future budget cuts.
