Dai Bingguo

WASHINGTON - China is using high-level meetings to urge the United States to allow more technology exports into the booming Chinese economy as a way of balancing trade. The United States, meanwhile, has criticized the communist-led nation's latest crackdown on democracy advocates, arguing that long-term stability depends on respecting human rights. Both sides issued familiar grievances at the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue, which began in Washington on Monday, but they took pains to stress a generally positive track in relations between the two economic superpowers. State Councilor Dai Bingguo said common interests between the world's two largest economies now make them "inseparable" and destined to grow more interdependent. - MARTIN CRUTSINGER and MATTHEW PENNINGTON
