China’s President Xi Jinping emphasized peace and stability in a meeting with Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang Wednesday as relations between the two countries are strained by conflict over territory in the South China Sea, Reuters reported.

Sang was expected to push for greater Chinese investment in Vietnam during his first meeting with the new Chinese president, Bloomberg reported.
