President Barack Obama said Monday the American economy was primed for "steadier, more sustained growth," and he called for deeper economic ties with China.
Speaking in Beijing at the annual meeting of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, Obama said the world had seen its "fair share" of turmoil this year.
But looking ahead, Obama called for deeper economic ties between the U.S. and Asia, and China in particular.
"Our future security is inextricably entwined with Asia," Obama said, referring to Chinese President Xi Jinping as a "partner."
He said the U.S. welcomed the rise of a peaceful, prosperous China, adding: "We want China to do well."
