Chinese president Hu Jintao's Washington visit

Barack Obama has been a met on Tuesday at the White House with Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping. U.S. President touched on the raw US-China trade debate issues and human rights.

In a presentation to the media after speaking with Xi, to be succeeded by current president Hu Jintao, Obama declared his willingness to strengthen cooperation with China and did not give them compliments.

- We welcome the rise of China. We believe that a strong and prosperous China can help to bring stability and prosperity of the region East Asia and the world - said Obama in the Oval Office, sitting next to his guest.

Obama added that the U.S. want to talk with Beijing on controversial issues in the economy and human rights.

- With the extraordinary growth of China over the past two decades, the success of their power, it goes also more responsibility - he stressed.

- we want to work with China to make sure that everybody is working by the same rules of the way when it comes to the world economic system - said Obama.

Washington has a claim to Beijing to promote the Chinese currency exchange rate, which exacerbates the U.S. deficit in trade with China, and the theft of intellectual property.

Obama also spoke diplomatically about human rights violations by China. - It also means that on critical issues like human rights we will continue to emphasise what we believe is the importance of recognising the aspirations and rights of all people - he said.

Xi ignored the negative threads in the statements of American President. He expressed only a desire to further cooperation with the U.S. and added that during his visit, "hopes to meet with broad strata of American society."

The administration notes that the visit Xi, is usually mutual understanding between the two leaders.
