China must 'move' on currency issue says US

"We've had this discussion in here, and we will have this discussion for the foreseeable future, and that is our belief that China must move," the White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, told reporters at his daily news conference.

Gibbs said that it is communicated in US dealings with the Chinese government, whether in a meeting with the President, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner or the National Security Advisor Tom Donilon.

"Our position is that has to change. And the House (of Representative) before leaving weighed in that it's of concern to members on Capitol Hill. I think that the (US) President believes that that simply demonstrates the widespread concern of people here in this country of leaders of the Chinese needing to take action on this topic," Gibbs said.
