Xi proposed that the two sides make full use of various dialogue and consultation mechanisms to provide fresh impetus to the bilateral cooperative partnership.

He said China supports the U.S. side's efforts to send 100,000 students to China for studies and pledged China's efforts in advancing educational exchange programs.

Meanwhile, Xi said that China's position on Syria is aimed at safeguarding peace and stability in the Middle East and is in line with relevant international principles.

China, he said, will continue its constructive role in easing the tensions in Syria and safeguarding peace and stability in the region.

Biden, for his part, said the current U.S. administration has decided to "renew and intensify" the U.S. role in the Asia-Pacific region, and "the ties with China in particular."

"Our bilateral relations are the most important in the world, not only important to both countries, but also to the world at large," he noted.

He also said Xi's visit would continue to sustain the high-level dialogue between the two countries.

At midday on Tuesday, Xi was invited to attend a luncheon jointly hosted by Biden and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
