** Clinton Urges Multilateral Solutions for Territorial Disputes**
The United States is urging southeast Asian nations to work "collaboratively and diplomatically" to resolve territorial disputes, such as disagreements over the South China Sea.
In Cambodia, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says multilateral talks should be used to settle the disputes. She says the issues involved often affect a wider region, and two-party negotiations can bring "confusion and even confrontation."
Clinton is attending meetings of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and holding separate sessions with her counterparts from the region, including key talks with Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi.
Brunei, China, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam claim all or part of the South China Sea, with its vast fishing grounds and potential oil and gas deposits.
**Russia Passes Law to Censor Internet **
Russian lawmakers have approved a bill that gives the government the power to blacklist websites containing what officials consider objectionable material.
The State lower house of parliament, voted Wednesday on the measure, which proponents say is meant to protect young people from child pornography and information about suicide and drug use.
Lawmakers also passed a bill that makes libel criminal offenses with punishment of up to five years in prison.
Critics say the new legislation is designed to suppress information and stifle dissent.
