ecretary of State Hillary Clinton received a rough reception from China's state-run media on Tuesday, as she arrived in the country for a round of diplomatic talks. News outlets blasted the U.S. for interfering in a recent spate of territorial disputes between China and its neighbors — with an article in Xinhua calling America a "sneaky troublemaker" — even though Clinton has said the U.S. does not have a formal position on the disputes, which involve small islands that have long been claimed by both China and its rivals. However, Clinton's trip to China is likely to be less tumultuous than her previous one in May, in which she was involved in helping Chen Guangcheng, a blind Chinese dissident, escape to the U.S.
