China leader heads to Olympics; to meet with Putin
Chinese President Xi Jinping has departed for the Sochi Olympics and talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, in what state media portrayed as a sign of warming relations between the neighbors and former communist rivals.

 

China's official Xinhua News Agency said Wednesday that Xi's visit demonstrated the special bond between the two countries. Xi pointedly made Russia his first foreign destination after taking over as president last March. (AP)
