MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Chinese President Xi Jinping will pay a visit to the United States in September, Xinhua news agency reported Wednesday.
China's ambassador to the United States, Cui Tiankai, said earlier in February that Beijing and Washington were holding negotiations to arrange Xi's visit to the United States later this tear. According to Cui, the recent contacts between the two countries on the top levels were successful and Beijing hopes to continue interactions this year.
The United States regularly accuse China of conducting cyber attacks, while Beijing denies the claims.
The White House said on Wednesday President Barack Obama and Xi Jinping during a telephone conversation discussed a number of issues related, in particular, to the cybersecurity, as well as Iran's nuclear program.
US National Security Advisor Susan Rice said earlier that Washington has sent Xi an official invitation to visit the United States.
The last meeting between the two leaders took place in November 2014 during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Beijing.
