China US Talks

Here is the transcript of Asst. Secretary of State Campbell's press briefing. This occurred after his one day closed door talks with PRC Vice Foreign Minister Cui in Hawai'i.

I think a few things can be drawn from this. The United States emphasized it had interests and treaties with various countries in the region. North Korea continues to be a festering pox that the PRC needs to nudge. And the issues in the South China Sea were also discussed, mainly the US wants a peaceful resolution to the matter. The trick now becomes will the PRC actually honestly work towards an agreement that benefits everyone in that area?
