The US side hopes to work with China to maintain contact between the heads of state of the two countries and strengthen communication and dialogue in a bid to promote steady development of bilateral ties and build a new type of inter-power relations, he said.
Xi said that China firmly maintains and promotes the development of China-US relations, and would like to work with the United States in enhancing mutual trust, expanding cooperation, handling differences, and maintaining high-level contacts.
He also said the two countries should jointly maintain and promote the sound development of a series of mechanisms, including the Strategic and Economic Dialogue and high-level consultations on humanistic exchanges, boost the development of cooperative partnership, and find a path for new-type of inter-power relations.
Xi is on the final leg of his four-nation Americas trip, which has already taken him to Trinidad and Tobago, Costa Rica and Mexico.
Xi's visits to Trinidad and Tobago, Costa Rica and Mexico have given a strong boost to the all-round and in-depth development of relations between China and the three countries.
