U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE
Office of the Spokesman
Taken Qukestion of May 12, 1994

1. CHINA Q: Has the U.S. conducted any visits to suspect Chinese facilities since the signing of the March statement of cooperation?

A: SINCE THE MARCH 16 SIGNING, U.S. OFFICIALS HAVE VISITED TWO SITES RELATED TO A SINGLE INVESTIGATION. THE CHINESE HAVE ALSO GRANTED APPROVAL TO VISIT ANOTHER SUSPECT FACILITY. U.S. OFFICIALS EXPECT TO VISIT THAT LOCATION IN THE NEAR FUTURE. BECAUSE THESE INVESTIGATIONS ARE ONGOING, WE ARE NOT IN A POSITION TO PROVIDE FURTHER DETAILS AT THIS TIME.

--WE LOOK FORWARD TO FURTHER COOPERATION FROM THE CHINESE ON THIS ISSUE.
