XI ARRIVES IN MOSCOW FOR STATE VISIT
    2019-06-06  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

PRESIDENT Xi Jinping arrived in Moscow yesterday for a state visit to Russia as the two countries are expected to bring their comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination into a new era.

Xi is expected to join Russian President Vladimir Putin in reviewing the achievements and experience in the development of the bilateral relationship over the past seven decades and charting the course for its future development.

The two leaders are also expected to sign or witness the signing of important cooperation documents, and attend a gathering celebrating the 70th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties.

During his stay in Russia, Xi will also attend the 23rd St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. He will address a plenary session to expound on China’s ideas on sustainable development and call for concerted efforts to safeguard multilateralism and improve global governance for the common development and prosperity of the world.

Xi’s visit to Russia, the eighth since 2013 when he was elected Chinese president, comes as the bilateral comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination is at its best in history.

Xi and Putin, maintaining a close friendship, have met nearly 30 times on bilateral and multilateral occasions since 2013. In a meeting with Putin in April, Xi said the bilateral relationship has become a major-country relationship featuring the highest degree of mutual trust, the highest level of coordination and the highest strategic value.

“We have the confidence and capability to bring our relations to a new era of greater development at a higher level, based on our experience and achievements of the past 70 years,” Xi said in an interview with TASS Russian News Agency and Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper on the eve of the visit.

Responding to a question on China’s economic outlook, Xi said China’s economy will have enough factors of support to maintain stable, healthy and sustainable development.

China is now the world’s second-largest economy, the largest manufacturer, the largest trader in goods, and holder of the largest foreign exchange reserves, he said.

In the first quarter, China’s GDP grew by 6.4 percent, sustaining its momentum of steady growth in recent years and representing the 14th consecutive quarter of staying in the 6.4 percent to 6.8 percent range, he said.(Xinhua)
