Both sides should undertake more in-depth strategic dialogue, Xi said, adding that exchanges between ordinary Japanese and Chinese people should also be stepped up to foster deeper mutual understanding.
"If Beijing and Tokyo intend to plan their future bilateral relationship based on Washington's attitude, they will only get lost", the state-run daily said.
In response, Xi emphasized that "bilateral relations have been put back on the right track and positive moves are gaining momentum".
"Our two countries have been making continuous efforts to improve relations", Abe said before flying to Beijing, expressing his hope that the visit would "lift bilateral relations to a new level".

Abe is preparing to bring a 500-strong business delegation with him to discuss cooperation in third countries, as pledged during Chinese Premier Li Keqiang's visit to Japan in May. Osuga said he could not confirm that figure, saying they were purely commercial arrangements reached by the companies involved.
"Switching from competition to collaboration, I want to lift Japan-China relations to a new era", the Japanese leader said, according to a translation by Kyodo News.
Anti-Japanese riots broke out in China after Tokyo nationalized the islands, called Senkaku by Japan and Diaoyu by China, and Beijing froze high-level contacts. That set off violent protests in China and sent Japanese investment in China and tourism into a nosedive.

Speaking at a briefing for reporters, Osuga said ties had recovered from what had been "not normal relations with a neighboring country", but said differences remained.

Indeed Mr Abe's visit shows the relationship is on the mend after territorial disputes and a disastrous falling out in 2012 over islands in the East China Sea.
"How we dovetail this and how we leverage Japan's strength in certain areas including medical equipment, hospitals and others is something that the two leaders can explore", Gokhale said. The two sides also agreed to cooperate on search-and-rescue operations at sea, and assist each other in developing health care and elderly care services.
At a joint news conference following the meeting, Prime Minister Abe said, "We confirmed that we are cooperative partners and absolutely do not pose a threat to each other".
China and Japan, the second and third largest economies in the world, are bitter rivals. Abe's government has agreed on holding talks with the US, its powerful ally, on a bilateral trade deal but also needs good relations with China, its biggest trading partner and the regional powerhouse.
