ABOARD A US MILITARY AIRCRAFT OVER THE PACIFI - US Defense Secretary Robert Gates said on Thursday that relations with China were at "a pretty good place" but declined to take a view on calls in Congress for a sale of F-16 jet fighters to China's diplomatic rival, Taiwan.

Gates, speaking en route to a defense conference in Singapore, said the United States was not trying to prevent China from realizing its potential but did want to find ways to successfully manage the differences between the two sides.

"There is value in a continuing dialogue by the two sides on just exactly what our concerns are, what our issues are and how we might alleviate those concerns on both sides," said Gates, who will meet his Chinese counterpart Liang Guanglie in Singapore on Friday.
