(SOUNDBITE) (English) REUTERS REPORTER, JON GORDON, SAYING: "This Friday (July 4) in Asia, market watchers look again to Seoul where a state visit from China's top leader Xi Jinping continues." In a reversal of long-held customs, the Chinese president is in South Korea ahead of the North -- China's long time ally. Two reads on this: First, it's a sign of how important trade with the South has become. And second, perhaps tacit disapproval of Pyongyang's provocative missile launches and nuclear program.
