The talks Wednesday will deal with the investigation into the collision and the return of the U.S. Navy EP-3E, which remained in Chinese hands after its 24-member crew flew back to the United States on Thursday. Foreign Ministry7 spokeswoman Zhang Qiyue said China also might want to discuss compensation for its pilot, who is missing since the collision, and F-8 fighter jet, which spiraled down into the South China Sea. The crippled EP-3E made an emergency landing on China’s Hainan island. “The incident has not been fully settled. We hope that the U.S. side will adopt a serious attitude toward China’s standpoint on the incident and handle it properly,” President Jiang Zemin, who is on a 12-day tour of Latin America. Jiang arrived in Cuba on Thursday, but said nothing further about the standoff. In Beijing, Premier Zhu Rongji told visiting U.N. General Assembly President Harri Holkeri of Finland that “all responsibilities for the incident he with the U.S. side,” Xinhua said. State media declared that a letter sent Tuesday by the Bush administration saying that Washington was “very sorry” for the loss of a Chinese pilot was the apology sought by Beijing during the 11-day standoff . “The United States finally apologizes!” said the state-run Beijing Morning Post. The U.S. letter did not refer to an apology and repeated the American position that the collision was an accident. Gun deaths at a low point Gun-related deaths and injuries declined substantially from 1993 to 1998, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. There were 30,708 gun-related deaths and 64,484 gun-related inju statistics are available. Most firearm-related deaths were suicides.

Analysts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention credited stricter sentencing in some areas, new laws that make it more difficult for criminals to get guns, the waning crack trade and low unemployment because of the booming economy. The ODC reported 30,708 gun-related deaths — 11.4 per 100,000 people — in 1998, the latest year for which statistics are available. The rate is down 26 percent from 1993, when there were 15.4 deaths per 100,000 people. Gun-related injuries fell by nearly half during the same five-year period, dropping to 64,484 in 1998, or 23.9 per 100,000 people. Guns remain the second leading cause of injury-related deaths in the United States, trailing only auto accidents. The drop during the 1990s coincides with a fall in homicides to levels not seen in three decades. The new figures, however, show that gun injuries declined across all three categories of intent — assault, accidental and intentional self-infliction. The National Rifle Associ ation said the lower death rates are evidence that gun-safety programs are reaching Americans and that gun laws are working. “This is obviously good news,” said Patricia Gregory, an NRA spokeswoman. “There are tens of thousands of firearms laws on the books. Strict enforcement of existing law could reduce these numbers even further.” Gun-control advocates called for tighter restrictions on firearm sales and more money for law enforcement. “When we have 30,000 deaths a year, that’s too many,” said Soledad Roybal, a spokeswoman for the Center to Prevent Handgun Violence.

The rate was just 1.8 per 100,000 for women over age 65. The problem is likely to get worse as the population ages, analysts said. “It was just something that kind of popped out,” said J.
