ON BOARD AIR FORCE ONE (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama will discuss cyber security with Chinese President Xi Jinping when the two leaders meet in California next week, White House spokesman Jay Carney said on Tuesday.

Carney declined to comment on a Washington Post report that Chinese hackers had gained access to designs of more than two dozen major U.S. weapons systems.

He said cyber issues were a key concern for the United States and raised at every level of meetings between U.S. and Chinese counterparts.
