Reagan expected to sign an A-accord with China

The United States and China have negotiated a breakthrough nuclear cooperation agreement that President Reagan is expected to sign during his trip to the communist nation, administration officials say.

The nuclear agreement involves a $20 billion sale of a dozen nuclear reactors to China and dramatizes one of Reagan's major goals - to expand the US trade market on the mainland.

Mr. Reagan flew to Guam Tuesday, his final rest stop before arriving in Peking tomorrow. Before leaving here, he urged China and other Pacific nations to join the US in ''opposing expansionist aggression'' by the Soviet Union. ''That is what our trip to China is all about,'' he said.
