US giant Boeing has signed deals with Chinese firms to sell 300 aircraft and open a completion centre in the Asian giant, China's official Xinhua news agency reported, as President Xi Jinping began his first state visit to the United States.

State-owned Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC) also signed an agreement with Boeing Tuesday to set up a "completion centre" in China for its 737 airliners, Xinhua said. Xi is due to visit Boeing's main plane factory in Washington state on Wednesday, as he looks to highlight the importance of China to US firms. Later in his trip he will travel to Washington DC to meet US President Barack Obama at the White House. China is expected to add 6,330 new aircraft worth $950 billion to its commercial fleet by 2034, Boeing said last month in its annual China Current Market Outlook. A report by the Shanghai Securities News on Tuesday said plans for a Boeing factory in the eastern Chinese province of Zhejiang have been submitted to the central government in Beijing for approval. A Boeing factory in China would represent a shift in the US giant's strategy in the crucial market, where European rival Airbus has a final assembly operation for medium-range Airbus 320 aircraft in the northern port of Tianjin and plans to open a new completion and delivery centre for long-haul A-330s. Boeing declined to comment on the Shanghai newspaper report.

They are China's vast number of petitioners. They turn to petitioning offices around the country when local courts or officials either cannot or choose not to address their plights. Their complaints range from labor disputes to environmental damage to forced home evictions. When local offices fail, they turn to Beijing. On Thursday, Chinese state-run Xinhua News Agency said since 2005, petitioner numbers have fallen for seven years straight. It says this signals the petitioning system is improving, and the public's rights are being protected. But not everyone agrees, especially petitioners themselves. [Yi Dengzhen, Petitioner from Hubei Province] "It's wrong, wrong. There are more and more petitioners. The old issues don't get resolved. New issues come up, and there are actually more petitioners now." Keeping the number of petitions down is a major focus for China's communist authorities. Chinese leaders see them as a source of instability, and local governments are either punished or rewarded depending on how they keep a lid on petitioners. Petitioners frequently report being illegally detained and abused by authorities. Local governments are known to set up checkpoints around Beijing, and intercept individuals from their jurisdiction before they make it to the capital. A petitioner from northern Heilongjiang province says the detentions spike during politically sensitive dates. [Ru Jicheng, Petitioner from Heilongjiang Province] "This year's 18th Party Congress is much stricter than during the Beijing Olympics. Local authorities try to hold on to their positions, and will do anything to arrest us. The police even told us if they do anything, the government will back them up." The Chinese regime is currently preparing for its 18th Party Congress, to be held on November 8th. Xinhua's report followed a call by China's Ministry of Justice to, quote "comprehensively investigate petitioning issues to welcome the 18th Party Congress".

The Russian Defense Ministry said its bombers took off from the Hamadan airbase in northwest Iran and targeted both Islamic State fighters as well as militants previously known as the Nusra Front in three locations: Aleppo, Idlib and Deir el-Zour provinces. "The Russians did notify the coalition as per the memorandum of understanding for safety of flight," said U.S. military spokesman Col. Chris Garver. "They informed us they were coming through and we ensured safety of flight as those bombers passed through the area and toward their target and then when they passed out again." Garver could not confirm the targets, but while briefing reporters at the Pentagon from Baghdad, said two areas the Russians claimed to have bombed had few if any fighters from the Islamic State, which the U.S. also refers to by its Arabic acronym "Daesh."
