Chinese President Xi Jinping attended a private dinner hosted by US President Barack Obama near the White House in Washington D.C. on Sept. 24, which kicked off their fifth face-to-face meeting together. The dinner serves as a prelude to the formal gathering scheduled the next day.

They relaxed and enjoyed candid talks to exchange in-depth views on related topics of common concern. The three-hour-long discussion is considered a continuation of informal talks between the two leaders that occurred in Sunnylands, Ca., in June 2013 and at the Zhongnanhai Compound, Beijing in November 2014.

As the world’s largest developing country and the biggest developed country, China and the US playhold irreplaceable roles in regards tohandling international affairs.  The China-US relationship is of great significance not only for both sides but also for the rest of the world.

The international situation is undergoing profound and complex changes. A world order stands in flux. Accordingly, Sino-US win-win cooperation is emerging as more urgent than ever before.

Hence, Xi’s state visit has attracted plenty of global attention. We anticipate their formal meeting to bring about a stronger consensus that will bear fruits for a better future ahead.
