China’s President Xi Jinping is planning his first state visit to the U.S., according to Chinese state media.
The country’s ambassador to the U.S., Cui Tiankai, told China Daily that he was discussing the visit with American officials, reports the Associated Press. No date has been set but it would be later this year.
On Friday, President Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice said Washington had invited Xi and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for state visits.
Xi and Obama last met in Beijing during an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meeting in November.
Recently, China and the U.S. have been working together on a range of issues including a climate-change pledge to reduce their greenhouse-gas emissions.
