U.S. Vice President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping met Wednesday in Beijing, but neither publicly commented on China's new air defense zone, or ADIZ, that has raised regional tensions.

After their initial meeting inside Beijing's Great Hall of the People, Biden said relations between the two sides must be based on trust.  But he made no mention of the ADIZ, which was a major focus of his talks in Japan on Tuesday.
