SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Chinese President Xi Jinping is signaling that China will send new pandas to the United States.

Xi calls pandas “envoys of friendship” between the Chinese and American people. During a speech before business leaders Wednesday, Xi said China is ready to continue its cooperation with the U.S. on panda conservation. The comment came at the end of a day on which Xi and President Joe Biden held their first face-to-face meeting in a year and pledged to try to reduce tensions. Xi did not share details on when or where pandas might be provided.

There are only four pandas left in the United States, in the Atlanta Zoo.
