Jiang On Hill

Chinese President Jiang Zemin went to Capitol Hill this morning to meet with congressional leaders, who openly criticized him for repression in Tibet, forced abortions and several other human rights issues. One member of Congress said the Chinese leader was evasive in his answers, but others said that a continued dialogue with China could be productive. NPR's Elizabeth Arnold reports.
