The meeting between Xi and Obama next month could also be viewed as an important move for the new Chinese leadership to promote all-dimensional diplomacy in a new era.

Before the meeting, Xi will pay state visits to Trinidad and Tobago, Costa Rica and Mexico.

In March, Xi visited Russia, Tanzania, South Africa and the Republic of the Congo. This was his first trip abroad as China's new head of state. Xi also attended the fifth BRICS summit in Durban, South Africa.

In April, Xi attended the Boao Forum for Asia Annual Conference 2013 in south China's Hainan province. He made a key-note speech at the opening session of the forum and met many foreign leaders on the sidelines of the forum.

Currently, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang is visiting India, the first leg of his first foreign trip since he took office in March. He will also visit Pakistan, Switzerland and Germany.

"In a couple of months, Chinese leaders have already traveled to several continents of the world. China is conducting an all-dimensional diplomacy in a new fashion," said Tao from the Institute of American Studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

The China-US relationship is one of the world's most important bilateral ties, whose global influence has gone far beyond ordinary state-to-state relations, Ruan said.

He added that the China-US relationship has occupied a special place in China's all-dimensional diplomacy, which has influenced in one way or another China's relations with other big powers, its neighboring countries or international institutions.

Under such circumstances, advancing the China-US ties will create a favorable environment for the development of relations between China and other countries, Ruan added.

China's all-dimensional diplomacy has highlighted the notion of peaceful development, win-win cooperation and a community of shared destiny that Beijing has long adhered to.
