U.S. OFFICIAL FAILS TO DISPEL CHINA'S ANGER

A senior U.S. government official failed Monday in talks with Chinese officials to dispel outrage over the sale of advanced warplanes to Taiwan, with China rejecting his explanation as "unjustifiable" and continuing to blast the deal.

"The U.S. side has to bear all the responsibility for the serious consequences arising from its wrong action," the official Xinhua news agency quoted Chinese Foreign Ministry officials as saying after meetings with Assistant Secretary of State William Clark.
