The Xi-Obama summit

Later this week, the presidents of the United States and China will hold a two-day summit, the first since Xi Jinping's elevation to the top job in China.

Gideon Rachman is joined by James Kynge, editor of FT China Confidential, and Geoff Dyer,who was a Beijing correspondent before his current assignment in Washington.
