After a day of diplomatic talks with Secretary of State John F. Kerry on Saturday, Chinese authorities here claimed they are committed to working "peacefully" toward the goal of getting North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons.

The leaders "did not shy away from differences," said Mr. Yang, but Mr. Obama and Mr. Xi "blazed a new trail" in the relationship between their countries.
"Cybersecurity should not become the root cause of mutual suspicion and frictions between our two countries," Mr. Yang said. "Rather, it should be a new bright spot in our cooperation."
