Instead, it was reported that the two discussed efforts to forge a new model for relations between the major powers.
Biden said after the meeting that the relationship must ultimately be based on trust and an understanding of each other's motives.
He added that the possibilities are endless if the U.S. and China can get their relationship right.
Biden and Xi were scheduled to hold another meeting over dinner on Wednesday evening, where China's air defense zone will likely be discussed.
The U.S. vice president is scheduled to depart for his trip to Seoul on Thursday.
