The news portal of China’s top Internet agency has released a photo of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg with a copy of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s book on governance at his desk while hosting an Internet official from the country.

Mr. Zuckerberg, who has long sought access to the market in China, where Facebook is blocked, is quoted by the portal as saying he purchased several copies of Mr. Xi’s book so that he and colleagues could learn about “socialism with Chinese characteristics.”

China.com.cn said the photo was taken while Mr. Zuckerberg hosted Lu Wei, China’s top Internet regulator, at his office in California.

In October, Mr. Zuckerberg surprised Chinese college students in Beijing when he chatted with them for 30 minutes in Mandarin.
