BEIJING (AP) – President Barack Obama says that even as the U.S. and China compete, the world's largest economies can work together on areas of agreement to advance the security of their people.

Obama is speaking at a joint news conference with Chinese President Xi Jinping (shee jihn-peeng). The leaders are addressing reporters following two days of discussions on economic and security issues.

Major areas of tension exist between the two countries, including cybersecurity and China's fears that the U.S. is seeking to contain its rise.

But Obama and Xi are trying to accentuate areas of agreement, including joint announcements on climate change and trade. Xi also says "the Pacific Ocean is broad enough" to accommodate the development of both the U.S. and China.
