Russian PM to visit China to firm up strategic ties

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev will visit China from October 22 to 23 to firm up Sino-Russian strategic ties.



Beijing: Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev will visit China from October 22 to 23 to firm up Sino-Russian strategic ties.
During his visit, Medvedev and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang will co-chair the 18th regular meeting between the Chinese and Russian heads of government, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a media briefing here on Monday.

Medvedev will also meet President Xi Jinping, she said.

The regular meeting mechanism, launched in 1996, has become an important platform to outline cooperation between the two countries which in recent years upgraded their relations to counter balance US pivot to Asia-Pacific.

Besides being a major defence partner, Russia also has become major energy supplier for China.

China-Russia relations are now at a new starting point, Hua said expressing hope that Medvedev`s visit can further explore the huge potential for cooperation and contribute to mutual economic development.

"As the first meeting between the Chinese and Russian premiers since China`s new government took office, the upcoming meeting is significant in deepening bilateral ties," she said.

China and Russia are each other`s most important strategic partner of coordination.

President Xi`s successful state visit to Russia in March has produced important consensus for bilateral cooperation, and this is being implemented by the two sides, she said.
