China and the United States will hold their first social and people-to-people dialogue on Sept. 28 in Washington D.C., Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said at a routine press briefing Monday.

Chinese Vice Premier Liu Yandong will co-chair the dialogue with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

The two sides will have in-depth exchange of views on bilateral exchanges and cooperation in relevant areas, according to Lu.

"China would like to work with the United States for a positive outcome from the dialogue," Lu said.

The meeting is one of the four high-level dialogues established during the Mar-a-Lago meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and US President Donald Trump in Florida in April.

At that meeting, the two sides agreed to establish high-level dialogue mechanisms, including the diplomatic and security dialogue, the comprehensive economic dialogue, the law enforcement and cybersecurity dialogue, and the social and people-to-people dialogue.
