BEIJING — Chinese media coverage of the two-day summit between President Obama and Chinese leader Xi Jinping has glossed over cyber hacking concerns, clearly not an issue that Beijing wishes to emphasize.

Instead, Chinese commentary is stressing the need for the two nations to forge a “new relationship’’ — a phrase officials here used repeatedly in advance of the summit.


President Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping wrapped up a two-day summit on Saturday at the Sunnylands estate in Rancho Mirage, Calif.

“Not to deny each other’s legitimate interests and to cooperate as much as possible in ways that will promote our mutual interests,” is how Shen Dingli, an American studies professor at Shanghai’s Fudan University defined it. The two countries “should not deny each other’s social systems. [The U.S.] should not tell us how to govern.”
