US Secretary of State John Kerry's visit to China is expected to deal with international problems like the Korean Peninsula crisis, according to US ambassador to China Gary Locke.

Mr Kerry arrived in Beijing this morning and is scheduled to meet with Chinese leaders and hold talks with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi before he leaves China on Sunday.

Mr Locke said: "The frequency of top level US officials visiting China demonstrates how important we view the US-China relationship...and how much we want our two countries to partner together to solve some of the tough issues facing not just China, United States, but indeed the world".
