RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. (AP) — President Barack Obama is wrapping up his meeting with Chinese leader Xi Jinping (shee jihn-peeng).

Nearly two hours were set aside Saturday at a California desert estate for the leaders to continue discussing a range of issues. Obama and Xi met for several hours Friday evening.

After he bids farewell to Xi, Obama plans to spend the rest of the day in California before returning home to Washington on Sunday.

The White House gave no indication of how Obama will spend his time. No immediate family accompanied him on the trip.

The U.S. president is an avid golfer and the Sunnylands estate in Rancho Mirage, where the talks are being held, has a nine-hole golf course.

Obama played golf in Washington on each of the past four Saturdays.
