BEIJING, March 11 (Xinhua) -- As China's parliament debates over a massive stimulus plan aiming at reviving the economy, Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi is in Washington on his first visit to the United States since the U.S. new administration took office.

Yang would discuss with the United States for a meeting between Chinese President Hu Jintao and his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama during the April G20 summit.

As the global financial crisis continues to worsen, the meeting between leaders of two world economic giants touches the nerve of the international community.

Zhou Wenzhong, Chinese ambassador to the United States, said how to jointly cope with financial crisis has become the most pressing task of the China-U.S. relations.

"It is the top priority both to us (China) and the United States," Zhou, a member of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), told Xinhua.
