Cybersecurity and the threat posed by Chinese hackers provided the main source of discord in the otherwise amicable meeting in the California desert over the weekend between President Obama and new Chinese leader Xi Jinping, a summit that set a standard for informality and direct exchanges between the leaders of the globe's two biggest economies.
After meeting with Japanese leaders Sunday, Secretary of State John F. Kerry signaled that the U.S. is prepared to engage in talks with North Korea if it moves toward abandoning its nuclear program.
After a day of diplomatic talks with Secretary of State John F. Kerry on Saturday, Chinese authorities here claimed they are committed to working "peacefully" toward the goal of getting North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons.
China's foreign minister called North Korea's ambassador in for a dressing-down Tuesday and demanded his country's cease making further threats, in a show of Beijing's displeasure over its erstwhile ally's latest nuclear test.
Talks between Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Chinese leaders Wednesday failed to narrow gaps on how to end the crisis in Syria and how to resolve Beijing's territorial disputes with its smaller neighbors in the South China Sea.
China's foreign minister on Wednesday said his nation is "committed to peaceful development" and hopes the United States will see Chinese progress "in the right and objective way."
Buoyed by President Hu Jintao's successful visit to Washington, China's relations with the U.S. are warming again, after a year of disputes over issues from Taiwan to Internet freedom, China's foreign minister said Monday.
President Hu Jintao's recently concluded state visit to the United States was "fruitful," but the two countries need to work on increasing trust and communication, China's foreign minister said in comments published Sunday.
The leaders "did not shy away from differences," said Mr. Yang, but Mr. Obama and Mr. Xi "blazed a new trail" in the relationship between their countries.
"Cybersecurity should not become the root cause of mutual suspicion and frictions between our two countries," Mr. Yang said. "Rather, it should be a new bright spot in our cooperation."
