Topic - U.S. Embassy In Beijing
China's communist rulers are accusing the top U.S. diplomat in Hong Kong of interfering in the country's internal affairs by promoting democracy.
Recent spats between the United States and China are focused on one particular venue: U.S. diplomatic compounds across China, a testimony to the fact that America's soft power is becoming increasingly more menacing to the autocratic communist regime.
Vice President Joseph R. Biden said he believes that Chinese legal activist Chen Guangcheng's future is in the United States.
The Obama administration Thursday found itself on the defensive over its handling of a blind Chinese dissident at the center of a diplomatic firestorm between Washington and Beijing, as confusion over the fate of Chen Guangcheng only deepened in both capitals.
With a diplomatic solution to the case of a blind Chinese legal activist unraveling, the White House on Thursday defended the administration's handling of the the dissident's case, insisting that U.S. officials had not pressured him to stay in the country.
The head of the House Foreign Affairs Committee is urging President Obama to protect a blind Chinese dissident reportedly sheltered in the U.S. Embassy in Beijing as Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton heads to China for long-scheduled talks suddenly overshadowed by the diplomatic emergency.
A blind legal activist escaped house arrest in his Chinese village for American officials' protection, activists said Saturday, creating a diplomatic dilemma for the U.S. and Beijing days ahead of a visit by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
