US President Barack Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping have held “candid and productive” talks at the White House.
The Chinese leader is in the US for five day state visit.
President Obama said both countries are working together on climate change:
“Our two countries are also putting forward our common vision for the ambitious climate change agreement that we seek in Paris. When the world’s two largest economies, energy consumers and carbon emitters come together like this, then there is no reason for others countries, whether developed or developing, not to do so as well”
Both men agreed that cyber crime must stop and have reached a common understanding on the concerns expressed by US companies operating in China.
