In separate meetings with each leader, the delegation focused on issues of concern: North Korea's nuclear testing and missile launch, climate change and clean energy, human rights in China and Tibet, intellectual property rights, and the global financial crisis.

"We had productive discussions about how the United States and China can cooperate on improving international security, growing our economies and protecting the environment," Pelosi said. "We urged the Chinese leaders to use their influence to help bring North Korea to the table for Six-Party Talks. On clean energy and climate change, both sides agreed to work together to confront the urgent challenge we face. Our delegation also emphasized the bipartisan concern in Congress on China's poor record on human rights in China and Tibet."

"Republicans and Democrats are united in our concern about human rights abuses in China and Tibet," said Congressman James Sensenbrenner, Republican of Wisconsin.

Earlier in the day, the congressional delegation participated in a two-hour working session with the Chinese National People's Congress' Environmental Protection and Resources Conservation Committee.

"Our meetings this week reinforced the urgent need for the United States and China to take concrete actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to help preserve our planet," said Congressman Edward Markey, Democrat of Massachusetts, Chair of the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, who co-chaired today's meeting with Chinese officials. "Today's session furthered our commitment to work together."

When hundreds of thousands Chinese armed military forces deadly crackdown on the peaceful demonstrations in all parts of Tibet last March,  the speaker of US House representative, Nancy Pelosi visited the headquarter of Tibetan government in-exile that based in Dharamshala, India, met with the Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama and strongly denounced China's deadly crackdown in Tibet, calling on the world to pressure the Chinese leadership.
