US President Barack Obama and China's Xi Jinping vowed to fight global warming and halt commercial cyber-theft, but exchanged sharp words on human rights and territorial disputes.

At an extraordinary joint news conference, Obama blamed China on its treatment of dissidents and insisted hacking attacks on US firms must stop, even as he thanked Xi for his commitment on climate change.

The world's top two economic powers are also its biggest polluters, and campaigners hailed their joint commitment to reduce emissions as a key step towards a global climate pact before the end of the year.
