U.S. President Barack Obama on Monday met with China's Vice Premier Wang Qishan and State Councilor Dai Bingguo, who were attending the China-U.S. Strategic and Economic Dialogue here.

They exchanged views on a broad range of economic, security and other issues of importance to both countries, the White House said in a readout of the meeting, noting that both sides reaffirmed their commitment to building "a cooperative partnership that is comprehensive in scope, cooperative in nature, and yields positive achievements that benefit our people."

They agreed that concrete actions by both sides are needed to build such a partnership and Obama "encouraged China to implement policies that support sustained and balanced global growth as well as a more balanced bilateral economic relationship," said the readout.

The two sides also discussed some other issues, including human rights and those related to Iran and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Wang and Dai came to Washington to co-chair the third round of China-U.S. Strategic and Economic Dialogue with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, who attended the Oval Office meeting along with U.S. Vice President Joe Biden.

The two-day dialogue started on Monday.
