The United States has no intention of containing China because doing that is not in the interests of the U.S., visiting U.S. President Barack Obama said in Beijing Tuesday night.

The United States is willing to conduct candid communication and dialogue with China, improve mutual understanding, draw on each other's experience, manage and control disagreements effectively and avoid misunderstanding and misjudgment, Obama said during a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

China is a partner of cooperation for the United States, Obama told Xi, while noting that the United States supports China's reform and opening-up efforts.

In the times of multipolarization, Obama said, the U.S. side welcomes a constructive role played by China in international issues and is willing to enhance exchanges and cooperation with China, jointly tackle various global challenges and promote peace and security in the Asia-Pacific region and the world.

He said he had very in-depth talks with Xi, which deepened his understanding of the situation in China and the thoughts of the Chinese government and leaders on governance.

He had a better understanding of why the Chinese people cherish the country's unification and stability, Obama said.
