New Briefs: Airport Talks Resume

HONG KONG (AP) - Britain and China reopened talks June 4 on a U.S $10.6 billion

airport for Hong Kong after a seven-month break caused by friction over the transfer

of the colony to Chinese rule.

The negotiators gave no indication whether they made progress on financing the ambitious

Chek Lap airport plan. But Hong Kong's ATV-World television said the Chinese were

believed to have approved H.K. $564 million (U.S. $73 million) to finance the provisional

airport authority which oversees the project.

"Both sides need to keep talking," said Chinese negotiator Guo Fengmin.
