(TibetanReview.net, Feb13, 2015) – Chinese President Xi Jinping has on Feb 11 accepted an invitation to pay a state visit to the USA in September during a telephone conversation with President Barack Obama. However, he has asked the latter to ensure that the Tibet and Taiwan issues do not interfere in bilateral ties, reported China’s official Xinhua news agency Feb 11.

Urging both sides to respect and accommodate each other’s core interests and major concerns, Xi expressed the hope that Washington takes seriously China’s concern on Taiwan and Tibet to keep China-US ties away from unfavorable interference, the report said.

“Over the past year, we have had a series of in-depth talks, reaching important consensus on China-US ties as well as significant issues concerning regional and international peace and development,” Xi was quoted as having told Mr Obama. “I look forward to continuing strategic dialogues with President Obama.”

Xi was also reported to have called on both sides to broaden cooperation in economy and trade, military, energy, environmental protection, infrastructure and law enforcement and expand people-to-people exchange, so as to consolidate the foundation of China-US ties.
