"However, some problems still exist in Sino-U.S. economic ties," Xi said during their meeting at the Great Hall of the People in downtown Beijing.

He expressed the hope that the U.S. side will bear in mind the general and long-term interests, properly handle economic and trade frictions, support two-way investment and avoid politicizing trade issues.

Xi stressed the importance of cultural ties in bilateral relations, saying he hopes the two sides will jointly promote cultural exchange.
