Korean look at US/China meeting

Korea Times

Parsing of Obama-Hu summit

"The Washington summit between President Barack Obama of the United States and President Hu Jintao of China on Jan. 19, regardless of U.S. intention, publicly marked the beginning of an era of shared influence, leadership and responsibility by the G2 superpowers over complex regional issues and challenges in Asia.

"Their cooperation on global affairs would also affect all the nations of the world, which were never interdependent on each other so much before in history. The symbolic frame of agreement coming out of the summit was mutual commitments by the United States and China to cooperate on ``a wide range of security, economic, social, energy, and environmental issues … to promote peace, stability, prosperity, and the wellbeing of people throughout the world.”"
