PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) - It may not have been Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev's Cold War walk by a frozen lake.
But President Barack Obama and Chinese leader Xi Jinping's 50-minute stroll through an estate in the California desert could mark a notable moment in the relationship between the heads of the world's two largest economies.
At the very least, it was a rare opportunity Saturday for the presidents to dispense with coats, ties and advisers, and hold extended one-on-one talks.
Tom Donilon, Obama's national security adviser who helped orchestrate the two-day summit, says the walk was an important moment to "establish and deepen their personal relationship" as the leaders address major issues.
