Jiang's Day

Chinese President Jiang Zemin met today with President Bill Clinton in the first US-Sino summit since the repression of pro-democracy demonstrators at Tiananmen Square in Beijing. That incident soured relations between the two countries. President Clinton made only oblique remarks about China's human rights abuses in opening remarks to the summit. He emphasized the need for greater understanding and cooperation between the two nations. NPR's Ted Clark reports.
