NEW YORK -- Chinese Premier Li Keqiang on Monday met with US President Barack Obama on the sidelines of the ongoing 71st session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
Li and Obama are in New York attending the UNGA session that opened earlier last week.
Earlier in September, they were both present at the 11th East Asia Summit in Vientiane, the capital city of Laos.
Li, accompanied by his wife Cheng Hong and other senior Chinese officials, arrived in New York as guest of the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Sunday.
The premier is scheduled to outline China's stance on major issues including international order, global governance, and peace and development, while addressing the general debate of the UNGA session.
During his stay in New York, Li is also expected to meet with Ban and hold talks with some state leaders.
