Hu said progress has been made in bilateral ties recently, including the success of the 2nd round of the China-U.S. Strategic and Economic Dialogue last month.

China and the United States share challenges such as further pushing for the recovery of the world economy and dealing with global as well as important regional issues. It is necessary for the two countries to work together in pursuit of mutual benefit, Hu said.

China is willing to work with the United States to carry on contacts at various levels, deepen practical cooperation, boost communication and coordination on important international and regional issues and push forward the bilateral relations, Hu said.

The Chinese leader said China is willing to work with all the parties involved to push for a positive outcome at the ongoing Toronto G20 summit.

Saturday's meeting was the second between Hu and Obama this year. They met in April in Washington on the sidelines of a Nuclear Security Summit.
