US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson wrapped up his six-day Asia tour on a high note after holding talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
"He looks forward to enhancing that understanding in the opportunity for a visit in the future", Tillerson said.
"And I also appreciate your comment that the China-U.S. relationship can only be defined by cooperation and friendship".
China and the U.S. would work together to resolve the nuclear tensions on the Korean peninsula, he said.
Xi told Tillerson that China considered his meetings on Saturday with Foreign Ministry Wang Yi and top diplomat Yang Jiechi to have been productive and constructive.
Since then, President Trump has reaffirmed the policy but later accused China of not doing enough against the threat of North Korea after its regime launched a missile during Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's visit to the United States in February.
China has reportedly been irritated at being repeatedly told by Washington to rein in North Korea's nuclear and missile programs, and the United States decision to base an advanced missile defence system in South Korea.
North Korea's leader Kim Jong-Un has announced a "new birth" in his country's rocket programme after overseeing a test.
Xi welcomes President Donald Trump to visit China, according to People's Daily, the Communist Party's flagship newspaper.

Nor did he address a query about whether Trump's remarks on Friday on Twitter, complaining about China's inaction on the North Korean issue, had made Tillerson's trip to China more hard.
The announcement on March 19 came as U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was meeting with officials in Beijing.
There is no doubt about the USA military advantage in the world.
Tillerson and Xi did not speak about their differences, including possible punitive trade measures against China and Beijing's assertiveness in the South China Sea.
Mr Tillerson's tone was far less aggressive, saying Mr Trump places a "very high value on the communications that have already occurred".
Trump, during his campaign, branded China a currency manipulator, accused it of "raping" the US, and he pledged steep tariffs.
Tillerson, meanwhile, gave his first sit-down interview since becoming secretary of state to the conservative-leaning Independent Journal Review's Erin McPike, who was the only journalist the State Department allowed to travel on the secretary's plane for the three-nation Asia trip.
"Tillerson is testing the bottom line of China", Ruan said.
The US and China still do not see eye-to-eye on multiple issues, including the One China policy - that denies worldwide recognition to Taiwan as an independent state, political freedom in Hong Kong, and the rights of the country's Tibetan minority.
