>Clinton, Jiang OK Nuclear Pact
>By LAURA MYERS Associated Press Writer
>           WASHINGTON (AP) -- In a breakthrough summit, President Clinton
>and Chinese President Jiang Zemin agreed to a nuclear pact aimed at
>halting the spread of weapons in the Persian Gulf region. Clinton gave
>Jiang a warm welcome, but gently reminded him of U.S. concerns about
>China's human rights record.
>           Clinton will certify that China isn't exporting nuclear
>technology for weapons development by other countries, particularly Iran
>and Pakistan, a senior administration official said, speaking on condition
>of anonymity.
>           The deal, the centerpiece of a mostly symbolic summit, would
>allow a 1985 U.S.-China Nuclear Cooperation Agreement to go into effect
>and let the U.S. nuclear industry sell billions of dollars worth of
>reactors and technology in China.
>           ``We're satisfied that we have the assurances that we need ...
>that China is not engaging and will not engage in assistance to states
>developing nuclear weapons,'' the official said.
>           Clinton was to hold a joint news conference with Jiang later
>today to announce the pact and details of their one hour, 45-minute
>           On a crisp autumn morning, the U.S. president opened his
>meeting with Jiang by saying all people must be ``treated with dignity,
>free to express their beliefs.'' He also urged stronger U.S.-China ties
>and delivered a generally optimistic outlook of the relationship. ``Let us
>strengthen the bonds between us,'' he declared.
>           Jiang reminded Clinton about China's insistence that the United
>States should not impinge on Beijing's sovereignty.
>           ``I hope that the development of China-U.S. relations will
>positively promote mutual respect, peaceful coexistence and common
>development of all countries in the world, different in history, culture,
>social system and level of development,'' Jiang said through an
>           But he, too, sounded an upbeat note in English: ``Let us the
>Chinese and the Americans join hands and together with people around the
>world work hard to bring about a new century of peace, stability and
>           Neither leader mentioned Tiananmen Square by name or the 1989
>massacre there of pro-democracy demonstrators by the Chinese military that
>sent the U.S.-China relationship into a tailspin and caused diplomatic
>estrangement. Jiang's state visit is the first by a Chinese leader in 12
>           Instead, Clinton couched in the diplomatic language of hope the
>two countries' deep differences, including on human rights, Tibet,
>           ``Both our countries can best advance our interests and our
>values by working together rather than standing apart,'' he said,
>struggling with a hoarse voice. ``For together we can lay the groundwork
>for a better, safer world where peace prevails, prosperity grows, ...
>where people are treated with dignity, free to express their believes and
>observe their faiths.''
>           Apart from the nuclear accord, the United States and China
>agreed on a maritime cooperation pact to handle incidents at sea. Jiang
>also consented to stationing U.S. drug agents at the American embassy in
>Beijing to combat narcotics trafficking.
>           In a coup for the Boeing Co., China will sign a $3 billion
>agreement Thursday to buy 50 aircraft, the biggest airline purchase in
>China's history. The deal might take the sting out of the U.S.-China trade
>deficit, heading toward $44 billion this year, but doesn't solve Chinese
>tariff barriers.
>           During a welcoming ceremony, a contrary chorus positioned
>across the street from the White House chanted ``Stop the genocide in
>Tibet'' and ``Boycott Chinese goods.'' As Jiang made his way to the red
>carpet on the South Lawn, human rights protesters kept far away by a fence
>raised their voices but were drowned out by ceremonies that included the
>playing of both nations' anthems. A full military color guard and band
>greeted Jiang as well.
>           The demonstrators object to communist China's human rights
>record, its jailing of dissenters and its religious persecution in Tibet
>and elsewhere. The protest was among the largest held here against a
>foreign leader.
>           The event took place at Lafayette Park, across the street from
>the White House and within earshot of Blair House, where Jiang is
>           ``The Clinton administration is rolling out the red carpet for
>the regime that rolled out the tanks at Tiananmen Square,'' said Rep.
>Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., one of the scheduled protest speakers.
>           The two presidents spent about an hour Tuesday night informally
>talking about the contentious issue of human rights. ``I wouldn't assert
>there were any instant conversions,'' the U.S. official said, adding that
>in the leaders' one-on-one talks today the subject came up only in
>           They met for 90 minutes in the relaxed setting of the Yellow
>Oval Room on the second floor of the residence after Clinton gave Jiang a
>15-minute White House tour. Shown a copy of the Gettysburg Address written
>in Abraham Lincoln's own hand, Jiang, who likes to impress Americans by
>reciting the speech and other historical documents in English, recounted
>the first few words for Clinton, ``Four score and seven years ago ...''
>           At the informal chat, Clinton asked Jiang about charges the
>Chinese government tried to influence U.S. elections in 1996 by making
>illegal campaign contributions, the subject of congressional hearings.
>Jiang said China wasn't involved but would cooperate with any U.S.
>investigation, the American official said.
>           As a candidate, Clinton criticized President Bush for
>``coddling dictators'' after Tiananmen. Now he says the United States and
>China, a growing economic and military power, must move beyond their deep
>cultural and political differences.

>"The American elite is almost beyond redemption.  Moral relativism has set
>in so deeply that the gilded classes have become incapable of discerning
>right from wrong. Everything can be explained away, especially by
>journalists. Life is one great moral mush -- sophistry washed down with
>Chardonnay. The ordinary citizens, thank goodness, still adhere to
>absolutes... It is they who have saved the republic from creeping
>degradation while their 'betters' were derelict."
