NUSA DUA, Indonesia - US President Barack Obama and Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao met on the sidelines of an Asia leaders' summit in Indonesia on Saturday at a sensitive time for US-Chinese relations.

A photographer allowed in for the start of the meeting said that Wen and Obama were sitting next to each other, with US officials, including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Obama's national security adviser Tom Donilon also, attending.

Wen and Obama were engaged in small-talk as the meeting began. Print reporters were not allowed in to the start of the talks.

A Chinese diplomat told Reuters it would be a "small scale" meeting, providing no other details. A US official said it would likely be brief.
