TOKYO -- U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman will visit China this Sunday in a late addition to her Asia itinerary, the State Department announced Wednesday, shortly after she discussed Beijing tensions and Taiwan security with reporters in Tokyo.

A news release said Sherman will be in China on Sunday and Monday, where she will meet officials including Foreign Minister Wang Yi in Tianjin. "These discussions are part of ongoing U.S. efforts to hold candid exchanges with PRC officials to advance U.S. interests and values and to responsibly manage the relationship," the statement said.
