Xi's US Visit 2015

A week to remember, September 30

30 Sep 2015

One week, two coasts and a host of events. President Xi Jinping's first state visit to the US included a packed itinerary on both sides of the United States, from an address to the UN General Assembly in New York to meetings with corporate executives in Redmond, Washington. In between, Xi presented a gift to the UN, had a chat with a Boeing employee, posed for photos with a high school football team and greeted children on the South Lawn of the White House with US President Barack Obama. Xi was accompanied by his wife, Peng Liyuan , who took time out to visit Microsoft's main campus and meet children at the Smithsonian Zoo with US first lady Michelle Obama. Photos: AP, AFP, Xinhua, Reuters, TNS
