A People's Liberation Army delegation led by the Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the PLA Cai Yingting left Beijing on Aug 20 for an official visit to the United States.

Cai's entourage includes Wang Ning, chief of staff of the Beijing Military Area Command, Zheng Qunliang, deputy commander of the Jinan Military Area Command, Jia Xiaowei, chief of staff of the Guangzhou Military Area Command, and Chen Shoumin, deputy head of the strategic planning department of the PLA General Staff Headquarters.

According to the US Department of Defense, the PLA delegation will visit the US army base in Fort Hood, Texas, and other bases.

This is the second visit led by senior Chinese military officials to the US in about three months. The last visit was in early May when Chinese Minister of Defense, Liang Guanglie paid a six-day visit to the country.
