U.S., CHINA FIND AGREEMENT

WASHINGTON - The United States and China on Tuesday pledged to deepen their cooperation on economic and military matters, setting aside a year of tension over issues such as arms sales to Taiwan and the value of China's currency with what officials referred to as a "milestone" agreement.

Ending two days of high-level talks in Washington, the two sides agreed that their top military leaders would meet regularly in what has been dubbed the "Strategic Security Dialogue."

In addition, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Chinese Vice Premier Wang Qishan released a "blueprint" for managing economic relations. The agreement included action on some long-standing issues, including China opening its financial sector to some U.S. and other foreign firms.
