NPR's White House Correspondent Mara Liasson reports on President Clinton's recommendation that China receive another one-year extension on its trading privileges with the United States. This year's debate in Congress is expected to be even tougher than those in the past because of allegations that China stole nuclear secrets from the U.S. and because China's government allowed riots at the U.S. embassy in Beijing after NATO mistakenly bombed China's embassy in Yugoslavia. President Clinton has recommended similar one-year extensions every year he's been in office, in what previously was referred to as "Most Favored Nation" (MFN) trade status.
