Clinton Heads To China For Talks

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is heading to Beijing for economic and strategic talks with Chinese leaders that will be dominated by efforts to win China's support to punish North Korea for the sinking of a South Korean warship.

Clinton, who will co-chair the talks with Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, said that she would also be pushing the Chinese for a "more balanced economic relationship" with the United States.

On May 22 in Shanghai, Clinton stressed the importance of cooperation between the two countries in solving world crises.
