US President Barack Obama: China must move on yuan

US President Barack Obama has said that China is not doing enough to allow its currency to rise in value.

President Obama said that, when it came to economic practices, there were a "range of things" China had done which disadvantaged its trading partners.

The president's comments came as he met other world leaders at the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) summit in Hawaii.

The value of the yuan has been a key point of conflict between the US and China over recent years.
