BEIJING -- President Xi Jinping on Tuesday called for more strategic trust and reciprocal cooperation between China and the United States.

Xi made the remarks as he met with former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger at the Great Hall of the People in downtown Beijing. Xi praised the veteran diplomat as an "ice-breaker" for China-U.S. diplomacy in the 1970s and for his continuous contributions to the relationship over the past decades.

Recalling his talks with U.S. President Barack Obama in Beijing in November and in a telephone conversation last month, Xi said the two presidents have charted the course for the bilateral relationship and China-U.S. ties are witnessing visible progress.

Xi highlighted the importance of building a new type of China-U.S. relationship as well as peace, stability and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region and the world.

"China attaches great importance to ties with the United States and is ready to make joint efforts with the U.S. side to take care of the relationship," said the Chinese leader, adding that he looks forward to a state visit to the United States later this year.
