U.S., China Continue Talks Over Cyber Espionage
Another two hours of talks are scheduled today in California between President Barack Obama and Chinese leader Xi Jinping.
They’ll wrap up their talks with a range of issues. Obama and Xi met for several hours yesterday evening discussing cyber-espionage and other issues.
Obama says the U.S. and China are in “uncharted waters” as they tackle the contentious issue of cybersecurity.
The two leaders carefully avoided directly accusing each other of spying. But they acknowledged an urgent need to find a common approach to addressing the matter.
U.S. officials cast the more relaxed summit at a California estate as an opportunity for Obama and Xi to hold candid and free-flowing talks on the issues that define the relationship between the two countries, including the economy, climate change and North Korea’s nuclear provocations.
