MANAMA (Reuters) – U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said his Chinese counterpart would be visiting Washington next week to continue talks on military relations between the two countries.

“Strategic competition does not imply hostility. I have met with my counterpart in Beijing a month ago, I met with him again in Singapore a week ago, he is coming to Washington next week to continue our discussions,” Mattis said during a speech in Bahrain.
