Chinese President Xi Jinping said Saturday that he is fully confident that there is a broad prospect for cooperation between China and the United States.

Xi made the remarks when meeting with Californian Governor Edmund Brown shortly before wrapping up a two-day meetings with his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama.

The two presidents met twice and took a walk together over the weekend at Sunnylands, a 200-acre picturesque estate in the Californian city of Rancho Mirage.

Xi thanked Brown and other state officials for their hospitality and arrangements in hosting the face-to-face meeting between him and Obama, the first since the two countries completed their latest leadership transitions.

Xi told Brown that he and Obama had in-depth, sincere and candid discussions on bilateral relations as well as international and regional issues of common concern, and reached important consensus.

Both sides agreed to build a new type of major country relationship based on mutual respect, mutual benefits with win-win results and laid out a comprehensive blueprint for the future development of bilateral ties, Xi said.

Speaking positively of the achievements and efforts made by Californian state government in promoting cooperation and exchanges with China, Xi said local-level cooperation can consolidate societal basis for China-U.S. relations.

Both China and the United States have been making structural adjustments, maintaining economic growth and increasing employment, which provide numerous opportunities for cooperation, Xi said.

China is willing to expand economic cooperation and two-way investment with California and strengthen cooperation with the state in such fields as clean energy, information technologies, infrastructure construction and culture industries.

Brown said it is an honor of California to host the meetings between the Chinese and U.S. presidents.

He said the world needs China and the United States to build a new type of major country relationship, which is in the fundamental interests of the two countries and their people.

California wants to strengthen cooperation and exchanges with China to make greater contribution to the development of U.S.-China relations, the governor said.

Xi arrived here Thursday after wrapping up a three-nation Latin American tour, which had taken him to Trinidad and Tobago, Costa Rica and Mexico.
