US and China Resume Military Ties
The BBC reports on the resumption of military ties between the U.S. and China after a six-month hiatus:
US officials said the two sides would hold maritime talks in Hawaii next month, followed by high-level talks in Washington later in the year.
The announcement follows a visit to Beijing by Michael Schiffer, the US deputy assistant secretary of defence.
China froze military ties in January after the US announced plans for a $6.4bn (£4bn) arms deal with Taiwan.
