Bush to visit China at end of Asian tour

Vice-President George Bush will visit China early next month at the end of his current five-nation Pacific tour, the White House announced. Deputy Press Secretary Larry Speakes said China's objections to the proposed sale of US military spare parts to Taiwan were expected to come up in Mr. Bush's talks in Peking. He said the visit would probably take place between May 5 and 9. Mr. Bush, a former US envoy to Peking, will be the highest-ranking Reagan administration official to visit China.

Mr. Bush, in Singapore Tuesday after visits to Japan and South Korea, said the United States would maintain a strong presence in the Pacific.
