Russia Rolls Out Red Carpet for Xi Amid Tensions With the West

Jun 06, 2019

Chinese President Xi Jinping is leading an entourage of more than 1,000 Chinese officials and businessmen to the official state visit at a time when Western investor sentiment has been hit by the arrest this year of Michael Calvey, a veteran American private-equity executive.
