Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived in California on Thursday for a meeting with US President Barack Obama, China’s state news agency Xinhua said.

Xi was greeted by local officials at Ontario International Airport in Ontario, California, as he arrived for the first China-US summit since he took office in March. It will be held on Friday and Saturday at the Sunnylands estate near Palm Springs.

Xi and Obama are expected to discuss domestic and foreign policy, as well as international issues of common concern, Xinhua quoted Chinese officials as saying.

At a meeting with US National Security Adviser Thomas Donilon in Beijing on May 27, Xi called on both countries to pursue a path that inspires future generations.

Referring to the China-US summit, Xi said he and Obama would discuss “important strategic issues of common concern” so as to deepen understanding, enhance mutual trust and promote cooperation, Xinhua said.
