Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao will meet with US President Barack Obama during his visit to the United Nations in New York this month.

"The exact time has not been decided yet," Chinese Assistant Foreign Minister Liu Zhenmin said Tuesday.

In an earlier announcement, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu said Premier Wen would attend the high-level UN meeting on the Millennium Development Goals and the general debate of the 65th session of the UN General Assembly as guest of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon from Sept. 21 to 23.

In June, Chinese President Hu Jintao held talks with Obama on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Toronto, in which the two sides agreed to promote bilateral relations and expand common interests, and strengthen cooperation in many major international and regional issues.

Earlier this month, when China-U.S. relations faced a complex situation, U.S. National Economic Council Chairman Larry Summers and Deputy National Security Adviser Thomas Donilon visited China, and held meetings with Chinese leaders.

"China and the United States should make unremitting efforts to enhance dialogue and cooperation, increase common interests, and properly handle problems that emerge in bilateral ties," Hu told the two senior U.S. officials during his meeting with them.
