The White House expressed "deep concern" about the treatment of human rights advocates in China, less than a week before President Barack Obama visits Beijing.

National Security Advisor Susan Rice made the comments as she met American and Chinese rights advocates, noting "they discussed the deterioration of China's human rights situation."

Last week, top American diplomat John Kerry said the relationship between the United States and China was the "most consequential" in the world today, warning it needed to be "carefully managed."

But the two major powers have clashed repeatedly in recent times, with Beijing last month warning Washington to keep its nose out of the protests that roiled Hong Kong for weeks.
