Xi says world benefits from US-China relations

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. (AP) — Chinese President Xi Jinping (shee jihn-peeng) says he’s meeting with President Barack Obama to chart the future of China’s relationship with the U.S.

Xi says the world has reaped huge benefits from the relationship between the two counties. Speaking through a translator, Xi says the two countries must think creatively and act energetically when it comes to their relationship. He’s calling for more exchange on economic stability and international challenges.

Xi says he’s confident the meeting will inject fresh momentum into the relationship.

Xi spoke as Obama welcomed him to a sprawling desert estate in California for two days of talks on high-stakes issues, including cybersecurity and North Korea’s nuclear threats. It’s the first meeting between the two leaders since Xi took office in March.
