As agreed to under the strategic track of the United States-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue, experts from relevant U.S. and Chinese foreign affairs and maritime agencies held the fourth U.S.-China Dialogue on the Law of the Sea and Polar Issues April 8-9, 2013, in Alameda, California. The discussions, which focused on a wide array of oceans, law of the sea, and polar issues, were informative and productive. The dialogue was co-led by the U.S. Department of State and the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and hosted by the U.S. Coast Guard. The meeting included opening remarks by Pacific Area Coast Guard Commander Vice-Admiral Paul Zukunft. Both sides look forward to a fifth round of the dialogue, to be held in China in 2014, in order to deepen bilateral exchanges on these issues.
