Chinese President Xi Jinping held a bilateral meeting with visiting U.S. President Barack Obama in Beijing Tuesday evening.
Before the meeting, the two heads of state had a walk at the Zhongnanhai leadership compound in central Beijing.
Obama is here to attend the 22nd Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders' Meeting and pay a state visit to China.
The two-day meeting concluded Tuesday afternoon, with APEC member economies approving a roadmap for APEC's contribution to the realization of the Free Trade Area of the Asia-Pacific (FTAAP).
During the walk, Xi said he hopes Obama's visit will achieve fruitful results.
While briefing Obama on the centuries-old history of Zhongnanhai, Xi said it is important to learn about China's modern history in order to understand the Chinese people's current aspirations and the path forward they have chosen.
After the walk, the two leaders began their bilateral meeting to exchange views on Sino-U.S. ties and major international and regional issues of mutual concern.
