Vice President Joe Biden is set to travel to China, Mongolia and Japan later this month.
Biden's trip to China, the fast-growing economic powerhouse, will include meetings with President Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabo. The U.S. has a complex but necessary relationship with China, which holds about $1.15 trillion in U.S. debt.
In Japan, the White House says Biden will express steadfast U.S. support for its close ally in the wake of the recent earthquake, tsunami and nuclear emergency. Biden will also meet with U.S. civilian and military personnel who are in Japan assisting with the disaster response.
The White House says Biden will also underscore U.S. support for Mongolia's two decades of democratic development.
The vice president is due to start his trip Aug. 16.
