    “We’re happy to have a discussion, but it can’t be just talks,” State Department Assistant Secretary David Stilwell, who leads the East Asian and Pacific Affairs Bureau, told reporters Thursday. "It has to be action.”

    “The formula I use on that, it’s all about building trust, right?” Stilwell said while discussing Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng's suggestion of bilateral talks. “Words/talk times, deeds/action equals trust. But right now, we’ve got nothing but words and — but no action taken to address our fundamental concerns with where this relationship is going.”
