London: China has reportedly agreed to purchase 24 fighter jets and four submarines from Russia.

According to China’s state-run media, this is the first time in a decade that China has made a large-scale military purchase from Russia.

Two of the submarines will be built in Russia and two in China.

The deal, signed just before last weekend`s visit to Moscow by the Chinese President, Xi Jinping, comes as both sides increase military co-operation, the BBC reports.

According to a report by Communist Party organ the People``s Daily and China Central Television (CCTV), China is buying 24 Su-35 fighters and four Lada-class submarines.

Chinese President Xi Jinping visited Moscow from Friday to Sunday for talks with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin.

The two countries are also pursuing a number of deals for Russia to supply Chinese industry with oil and liquefied natural gas, the report said.
