Biden: U.S. 'deeply concerned' by China's air defense move

How is the U.S. fending off China's power grab?

Vice President Joe Biden is in Beijing at a critical time when tensions between the U.S. and China are rising.

Biden tells Chinese president of 'deep concerns' over air defense zone

China has alarmed its neighbors by creating an air defense identification zone that extends over Japan's Senkaku Islands, which China claims as its territory.

But what is the U.S. saying about it?

"We the United States are deeply concerned by the attempt to unilaterally change the status quo in the east China sea," Biden said.

Jon Huntsman, the U.S. ambassador to China during the first two years of the Obama administration, discusses the significance of Biden's visit.
