Washington: US President Barack Obama will hold talks with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping in two-day summit in California next month to discuss a wide range of bilateral, regional and global issues, a presidential spokesman said.
Obama-Xi summit meeting would be held on June 7-8 in California at Sunnylands, the Walter and Leonore Annenberg Estate.
This will be Obama`s first meeting with Xi since he became China`s President.
"Obama and Xi will hold in depth discussions on a wide range of bilateral, regional and global issues," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said on Monday.

The National Security Advisor Tom Donilon will travel to Beijing on May 26-28 to prepare for this meeting, he said.
Whereas, the Chinese Premier Li Keqiang made his first overseas trip to India this week.
Meanwhile, the State Department yesterday said India and China are strong, prosperous and influential nations and their contributions are vital in addressing global and regional challenges.
"As strong, prosperous and influential nations, both China and India`s contributions are vital to addressing a broad range of regional and global challenges," State Department spokesperson Patrick Ventrell told reporters at his daily news conference.
