Dozens of world leaders are heading to Washington for the summit, which focuses on preventing terrorists from obtaining nuclear weapons.

Obama has sought China's cooperation on punishing North Korea for its nuclear weapons program and on climate change. The two countries remain at odds on maritime disputes, cybersecurity and other issues.
