Albright In China

NPR's Mary Kay Magistad reports that Secretary of State Madeleine Albright has concluded two days of talks in Beijing, serving as preparation for President Clinton's summit with Chinese President Jiang Zemin (jee-AHNG zuh-MIHN) in June. Albright pressed the Chinese on the issues of human rights, arms control and trade, while emphasizing cooperation between the two countries. The Chinese, in turn, pressured the U.S. on the one issue of most concern to Beijing: the U.S. relationship with Taiwan.
