US and China to 'work together'


The presidents of China and the US have agreed to work together to tackle some of the world's most pressing problems.

On climate change, Barack Obama said both sides agreed on the need for a comprehensive global deal in Copenhagen next month, not a political statement.

But underlying tensions were referred to, with Hu Jintao calling for joint opposition to trade protectionism.

Damian Grammaticas reports from Beijing.
