BEIJING (AP) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is urging China to play a responsible role in the world by helping to deal with challenges posed by Iran's and North Korea's nuclear programs and ongoing violence in Syria and Sudan and South Sudan.
Clinton appealed to China to support international efforts to persuade North Korea to end provocative actions, get Iran to prove its nuclear program is peaceful and end fighting in Syria and two Sudans.
Clinton said those hotspots "are some of the most pressing challenges we face" and the U.S. and China have a shared interest in resolving them.
Her remarks were prepared for Friday's closing session of an annual strategic dialogue that has taken place amid a diplomatic crisis over a blind Chinese legal activist.
