WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama will be looking for signs from China's leader at their upcoming meeting that Beijing is ready to address its reported high-tech spying.
The White House sees such cyberattacks as a top threat to the U.S. economy and national security. Further talks are set for July between U.S. and Chinese officials, with the focus on cyberespionage, along with other issues.
The summit Friday and Saturday at a California estate also is aimed at establishing personal ties between Obama and President Xi Jinping (shee jihn-peeng) as relations between the global powers grow increasingly complex.
Obama needs Xi's help in stemming nuclear threats from North Korea and Iran, combating the violence in Syria, and continuing the U.S. economic recovery.
The meeting is their first since Xi took power in March.
