China irked by U.S. surveillance flights

Reporting on U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates visit to China, the official XinHua news agency says the Chinese military is still unhappy with surveillance operations carried out by U.S. naval ships and aircraft.

“The resumption of China-U.S. military exchanges does not mean these obstacles have been cleared up, but means China wants to solve the disputes effectively,” said Luo Yuan, a research fellow with the PLA Academy of Military Science.
