BEIJING, Nov 10 (Reuters) U.S. President Donald Trump praised Chinese leader Xi Jinping as "highly respected" on Friday as he left Beijing for Vietnam, ending a visit which Chinese media declared set a "new blueprint" for handling U.S.-China relations and differences.

Trump pressed China to do more to rein in North Korea and said bilateral trade had been unfair to the United States, but lauded Xi's pledge that China would be more open to foreign firms.

The two also oversaw the signing of about $250 billion in commercial deals, but there was little progress reported on U.S. firms complaints about market access or U.S. government probes into issues like intellectual property theft.
