US envoy to Beijing urges fair play and fair trade
(03-18 17:42)

New US Ambassador to China Max Baucus says he will push for fair trade and urge Beijing to respect international human rights norms.
Meeting with journalists today shortly after arriving in Beijing, Baucus said he will work to ensure a level playing field for American businesses and workers.
The former US senator from Montana said Washington wants to partner with China in tackling global challenges while also urging Beijing to support the laws, norms, values and rights that underpin global society.
Baucus is taking over from former Washington Governor Gary Locke, who in his last news conference as ambassador urged Beijing to respect the rights of peaceful political activists and said Washington is deeply concerned about the fate of a minority scholar charged with separatism. –AP
