Against a backdrop of tensions over U.S. missile defenses, Chuck Hagel sat face to face with his Chinese counterpart Gen. Chang Wanquan on Monday in the first of a series of talks at the Pentagon.

Aside from the public expressions of goodwill and pledges of cooperation, there’s plenty of meat on the agenda.

Among the hefty topics to be discussed are the U.S. military’s pivot to Asia, the scourge of cyber attacks and China’s territorial disputes with several other Asia nations.
