LEON HARRIS, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Well, things remain chilly between the U.S. and China. We want to clarify now some information that we're getting from Washington about the meetings that have been scheduled in the wake of this spy plane incident. Now that the crew members have been returned to the U.S., there have been a couple of meetings set up, as it turns out. We've been talking all along about one set of meetings on April 18. As it turns out, there are two sets of meetings that have actually been planned.

The first set of meetings will be on April 18 and those meetings will happen in Beijing. The purpose of those meetings will be to discuss the details of the actual collision incident and find out exactly what happened, allowing both sides to get together and share their versions of the story.

The second set of meetings will happen on April 23, we understand, and that is going to take place in San Francisco. That is actually a meeting of the military Maritime Commission and they will be discussing the newest rules of the road, if you will, about how things should be conducted, policies to be established the next time countries actually have people or planes or ships or whatever that do interact out there in the open seas. So we'll report all of this on you, all of these meetings once they do actually happen so make sure you stay tuned here for more -- Daryn?
