Kerry to press China on maritime disputes, North Korea
US Secretary of State John Kerry will press China to calm maritime disputes with its neighbors and to push North Korea to curb its nuclear ambitions this week, senior US officials said on Wednesday.


The United States has been increasingly uneasy at what it sees as China's effort to gain creeping control over waters in the Asia-Pacific region, including its Nov. 23 declaration of an air defense identification zone (ADIZ) in an area of the East China Sea that includes islands at the center of a dispute with Japan.
