Clinton Weighs In on Asia’s Island Disputes

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in Beijing as part of a regional tour aimed partly at urging China and its neighbors to agree on a system for resolving territorial disputes in the South China Sea.

After arriving in the Chinese capital late Tuesday, Clinton met her Chinese counterpart Yang Jiechi and said Washington is "committed to building a cooperative partnership with China." She also said the U.S.-China relationship is a key part of the Obama administration's policy of boosting U.S. engagement in the Asia-Pacific region.
