Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson is meeting with his Chinese counterpart in Beijing next week, the Navy said today.

Richardson will meet with Chinese navy chief Vice Adm. Shen Jinlong and Central Military Commission leadership during a three-day visit from Jan. 13 to 16.

The goal of the trip is continuing "a results-oriented, risk-reduction-focused dialog between the two militaries," a Navy statement reads.

Richardson previously met the Chinese admiral at a seapower symposium last year and has conducted three discussions through video teleconference.
