BEIJING, China - New U.S. Ambassador to China Max Baucus says he'll push for fair trade and urge Beijing to respect international human rights norms.
Meeting with journalists Tuesday shortly after arriving in Beijing, Baucus said he will work to ensure a level playing field for American businesses and workers.
The former senator from Montana said Washington wants to partner with China in tackling global challenges while also urging Beijing to support the laws, norms, values and rights that undergird global society.
