China under pressure over yuan

High-level US delegation meets Chinese president to discuss currency reform.

    Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, and Timothy Geitner, the US treasury secretary, are meeting Hu Jintao, China's president, to discuss a variety of issues to ease tensions in the region, and improve ties between the two powers.
