U.S. TO SEND FULL DELEGATION TO WOMEN'S MEET IN BEIJING

The United States will send a full delegation to the U.N. women's conference in Beijing next month despite troubled relations with China, U.N. Ambassador Madeleine Albright said Wednesday.

Albright said she would lead the delegation but said it had not been decided whether first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton would attend. Senate Republicans on Tuesday tried to discourage U.S. participation by withholding funding for such conferences, but the issue failed to come to a vote.
