Clinton and Chinese FM meet

Clinton and Chinese FM meet

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is meeting with her Chinese counterpart at a time of rising tensions over a confrontation between American and Chinese naval vessels in the South China Sea.
Clinton told reporters Wednesday that Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi's visit to the State Department is a "very positive" development.
Yang says he and Clinton are preparing for a key April meeting in London between President Barack Obama and Chinese President Hu Jintao.
The diplomats did not mention their countries' spat over a U.S. Navy mapping ship confronted by Chinese vessels Sunday.
China says it was operating illegally in China's exclusive economic zone. The United States says Chinese ships surrounded and harassed the Navy vessel in international waters.
