Days after the U.S. and China traded new accusations of cyberspying, Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel says he will press the same issues in a face-to-face meeting with a top military officer from Beijing this weekend.

Hagel says he also plans to raise many of the territorial disputes that have raised tempers in the Asia Pacific region and talk about where the U.S. thinks China is overplaying its hand and presenting new challenges and new tensions to the area.

Hagel's meeting with the deputy chief of China's General Staff is slated for Saturday during a national security conference in Singapore.

Other Asian nations are likely to air complaints about escalating clashes in the region over disputed islands, colliding ships and China's placement of an oil rig in waters claimed by Vietnam.
