Senior US officials have arrived in Beijing, for high level meetings. The visit is expected to bolster relations between the US and China, as well as promote further dialogue between the world's two largest economies.

Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi noted that China attached great importance to the talks and hoped for "positive outcomes."

He says continuing to develop a positive and comprehensive China-U.S. relationship contributes to the two countries' major interests in peace, security and development.

Director of the US National Economic Council, Larry Summers, and Tom Donilon, US Deputy National Security Adviser, are in the Chinese capital to bolster relations between China and the US.

Tom Donilon, US deputy National Security Advisor said "We know you have a busy schedule but you set aside quite a bit of time for these sessions and we very much appreciate it."

During Monday's meetings, the two sides were expected to address issues like trade protectionism to create a better trade environment.

The two countries are engaged in a series of disputes over access to each other's markets for steel, tyres, films and other goods.
