President Xi Jinping will meet with US President Barack Obama soon, it was disclosed on Monday.
Premier Li Keqiang made the announcement after he received Jacob Lew, special representative of the United States president and the US treasury secretary, in Beijing.
The meeting between the two presidents would help to improve relations between the two countries, Li said. An official announcement about the meeting has yet to be released by the Chinese Foreign Ministry.
The White House website said the fourth and final Nuclear Security Summit will be held on March 31 and April 1 in Washington, DC. When meeting with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi last week, Obama said he hoped Xi would attend the summit.
