"Reporting from Beijing - President Obama and his Chinese counterpart, Hu Jintao, agreed to build a stronger relationship and work jointly to combat the spread of nuclear weapons, though differences over trade policies and human rights surfaced during a private summit meeting.
"Speaking to the media after their meeting at the Great Hall of the People, Obama said the U.S. welcomed China's rise as a world power, and President Hu said the two nations would step up visits, correspondence and phone calls "essential" to a closer partnership.
"On an issue of major importance to the U.S., Obama said China is cooperating in efforts to get North Korea to forswear nuclear weapons. Both leaders also said they were committed to curbing global warming."
