LOS ANGELES, Feb. 18 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice-President Xi Jinping on Friday night wrapped up a five-day official visit to the Unites States, which has proven to be a landmark in China-U.S. relations oriented toward the future.

The tour on Feb. 13-17 has drawn worldwide attention with its great significance.

During the five days, Xi visited four cities across the American continent, including Washington D.C. in the east, Muscatine and Des Moines in the midwest, and the western city of Los Angeles.

The vice-president attended 30 events. He met with U.S. President Barack Obama in the White House, his counterpart Joe Biden, Congress leaders and other senior officials. He also addressed several business forums.

Xi visited a farm, a school, and his old friends who he acquainted in Iowa state 27 years ago.

All in all, the visit has achieved its objectives of implementing the important consensus reached by Chinese President Hu Jintao and U.S. President Obama last year, advancing the China-U.S. cooperative partnership based on mutual respect and mutual benefit, and consolidating the friendship between the peoples of the two countries.

Xi Jinping offers friendship and peace and "hopefully" this would not be deliberately distorted by US Global Tyranny.But the US government, its US Congress and the US military are basically not interested. Their new anti-China policies in containing and encircling China would remain. Sabotaging, undermining, demonising .... and provoking China will be the order of the day! CIA agents and the US States Department are actively creating and inciting ethnic and religious chaos in Tibet, Xinjiang and Inner Mongolia. Nothing would change the US on-going agenda.WE must grasp the reality and not live in dreams ...!
