He came to San Francisco on Wednesday for the first face to face visit with President Biden in over a year.

China first gifted a pair of pandas to the US national zoo in 1972 and this started a trend of China sending pandas as a symbol of friendship and vice versa.

Both presidents met for about four hours to discuss the growing tension between China and the US, and at the end Xi Jin-Ping said, "We are ready to continue our cooperation with the United States on panda conservation, and do our best to meet the wishes of the Californians so as to deepen the friendly ties between our two people."
