BEIJING — U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld arrived in Beijing Tuesday for discussions on military relations and the status of Taiwan. Rumsfeld will meet Wednesday with President Hu Jintao, National Defense Minister Cao Gangchuan and Vice Military Commissioner Guo Boxiong, officials from the two countries said.

The purpose of Rumsfeld's first China trip is to rebuild military relations that dipped in April 2001 when a Chinese spy plane went down in the South China Sea while trying to chase off a U.S. spy plane near its airspace, the American Forces Press Service said. Control of Taiwan looms as a discussion topic, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Kong Quan said Tuesday at a press briefing.
