Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao and President Obama Hold Impromptu Summit on Economic and Security Issues

President Obama and Prime Minister Wen Jiabao of China held an unscheduled meeting on Saturday at the end of an Asian forum to discuss economic issues and China's festering disputes with neighbors over islands in the South China Sea.

US President Barack Obama met in Bali Saturday with China's Premier Wen Jiabao as leaders attending the East Asia Summit brought their meetings to a close.

China pushed back on Saturday against a week of US pressure to resolve a rancorous dispute over territorial claims in the South China Sea, a crucial, mineral-rich commercial shipping lane at the heart of growing tensions among Asian leaders.
