BEIJING, China, 11 February 2015

China’s President Xi Jinping told US President Barack Obama during a telephone call on Wednesday he hopes the United States will pay attention to China’s concerns on Tibet and Taiwan, and that the issues will not interfere with China-US ties.

Xi said the two sides should expand military, economic, energy, and environment cooperation, according to the official Xinhua news agency.

Obama has invited Xi for a state visit to Washington in September.
