Chinese Diplomat in Washington, Following Sea Confrontation

WASHINGTON (AP) - China's foreign minister visits Washington
today, following a confrontation at sea between an American ship
and five Chinese vessels.
The visit by the top diplomat was planned well before Sunday's
scrape, in which the Chinese ships surrounded the Navy surveillance
ship in the South China Sea.
Washington has formally protested that the Chinese ships acted
recklessly. Beijing says the U.S. broke international law by being
there.
Two U.S. defense officials said the American ship is designed
and equipped for submarine-hunting work and is part of a U.S.
surveillance operation in the disputed waters.
