Pressing China, U.S. Lines Up Allies on Issues Like Currency -

"WASHINGTON: The Obama administration, facing a vexed relationship with China on exchange rates, trade and security issues, is stiffening its approach toward Beijing, seeking allies to confront a newly assertive power that officials now say has little intention of working with the United States.
