Chinese President Xi Jinping's state visit to the United States in September will give a new boost to the development of a new type of major-country relationship, international think tanks said Thursday.

Xi accepted President Barack Obama's invitation for a state visit during a phone conversation on Wednesday. This will USbe Xi's first state visit to the US since he became China's top leader in 2013.

"Face to face communication will facilitate a steady growth of bilateral relationship and ensure a smooth transition of China's relations with the new US administration after presidential elections in 2016," said Ruan Zongze, vice president of the China Institute of International Studies.

During the phone conversation, Xi expressed hope that the two countries' Strategic and Economic Dialogue and high-level consultation on people-to-people exchanges, which will be held in the United States this year, will achieve as many positive results as possible.

Xi and Obama discussed several areas of potential cooperation, including working toward bilateral investment treaty and reducing greenhouse gas emissions ahead of a climate summit in Paris in December.

Chinese and US officials are beginning to prepare for the visit. US Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken visited Beijing on Wednesday and voiced his commitment to ensuring a success of Xi's visit.

Xi's September trip will coincide with the 70th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations. Analysts say Xi and Obama are expected to talk on regional and international issues such as the 70th anniversary of the victory against fascism, cyber security, the Iranian nuclear issue and the situation on the Korean Peninsula.
