"In the discussions that I've had with President Bush this morning we talked about ways of opposing all forms of terrorism. Recently what we have been doing has shown our position. Of course we also hope that the fight against terrorism should be accurate and hit the target and not hurt innocent people. At the same time we also hope that the United Nations should be fully involved. Regarding the issue of Anthrax, which we've been hearing a lot about, I think that all the countries in the world should consider Anthrax a serious public hazard to humans and we should be united together in the fight against it. We must stop this thing becoming and epidemic."

"Thirdly I do not have, I do not have knowledge of a direct link of the Anthrax incidents to the enemy, but I wouldn't put it past them. These are evil people and the deeds that have been conducted on the American people are evil deeds. Anybody who would mail Anthrax letters, trying to affect the lives of innocent people is evil and I want to say this as clearly as I can, that anybody in America who would use this opportunity to threaten our citizen, who think it's funny as a hoax to put out some kind of threat will be held accountable and will be prosecuted."

Just now President Bush and I very good talk. It is the first time we have met eachother.

We have reached a serious of common consensus onthese issues.
2. Today the Sino -us relat has major opport of improvement. We haave decided to conduct high-level dialogues on the co-op in the economy trade energy resoureces and cult exchanges. We will enhance the discussion and coi-ordination on major int and regional issues. I believe as long as the two countries firnly hold our commomn interests and properly deal with the relations with the two countries on the basisi on the three joint communiques of the 2 countries. Esp the issue of Taiwan - the Sino US relat will move forward.
US President George W. Bush said on Friday he was confident that China stood "side by side with the American people" during military strikes on Afghanistan.
But Chinese President Jiang Zemin cautioned the United States to avoid "innocent casualties".
After his first meeting with Jiang, Bush told reporters he was satisfied with China's co-operation on intelligence gathering and pursuing financial assets of al-Qaida and its founder, Osama bin Laden, who are believed to be behind the September 11 attacks.
"There was no hesitation, there was no doubt they'd stand with our people during this terrible time," Bush said at a joint news conference in Shanghai.
Jiang responded by telling reporters that he was "pleased to note that recently there's been an improvement in our ties".
The two leaders met on the eve of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit - a meeting that Bush hoped to use to garner further support from leaders of Pacific Rim nations for the US-led effort against terrorism.
It was not all talk of cooperation.
Bush reminded Jiang that the United States opposed human rights abuses, raising a traditionally sensitive issue between the two countries.
"The war on terrorism must never be an excuse to persecute minorities," Bush said.
He mentioned Taiwan, considered a renegade province by China, and said Beijing should preserve regional stability.
Taiwan on Friday decided to boycott the APEC summit to protest Beijing's decision to bar a presidential adviser, Li Yuan-zu, from representing the island at the summit.
Bush also spoke of the anthrax cases cropping up in the United States.
He said there was no direct link to foreign interests such as al-Qaida or Iraq, but he wouldn't put it past them.
Bush did not rule out the possibility that the anthrax attacks were acts of domestic terrorism and vowed to prosecute those who carry out
Six people have confirmed to have been infected, including one who died last week, and scores have tested positive for exposure after media
outlets and politicians received anthrax-laced letters.
Bush's first international trip since the attacks in New York and Washington is drawing extraordinary security.
Air space was restricted over Shanghai and 10-thousand police officers were guarding the streets.
