China's Foreign Minister Li Zhaoxing and US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice held talks by telephone about the North Korean nuclear issue and China-US ties, the ministry said. The call took place Tuesday evening Beijing time amid a flurry of diplomatic exchanges aimed at resuming international talks on dismantling Pyongyang's nuclear programs. A brief statement posted on the ministry's Web site said the two exchanged views on "China-US strategic cooperative relations and the Korean peninsula nuclear issue." It gave no details. It did not say whether Li and Rice discussed Beijing's recent anti-satellite missile, which has alarmed the US and other countries.
