MOSCOW, October 1 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has sent a message of congratulations to Chinese President Hu Jintao on the occasion of the 62nd anniversary since the formation of the People’s Republic of China.
As the Kremlin press service reported, the message says in particular:
“China’s achievements over the past years can be described with certainty as outstanding. I’m confident that the Chinese people will continue to successfully solve the tasks of ensuring stable development and prosperity of their state.
“We value close and mutually advantageous relations of Russian-Chinese strategic partnership. Our meetings held in 2011 within the framework of the events of the BRICS summit in April and in the course of Your state visit to Russia in June gave a considerable impulse to the joint work on advancing interaction in all directions. The implementation of the agreements reached by us will, undoubtedly, ensure further progress of cooperation in the trade and economic, scientific and technical, humanitarian and other fields.
“Coordination of our countries’ stands and approaches on the main global and regional issues - - both in the bilateral format and within the framework of such international organizations as the SCO and BRICS which are gaining authority - - becomes an ever more weighty factor of international politics. In modern conditions, Russian-Chinese interaction on the floors of the UNO, as well as G20, APEC and other multilateral forums gains special importance.
“I’m confident the Russian-Chinese constructive and fruitful dialogue at the highest level will continue promoting the deepening of multifaceted ties between the two countries for the good of our peoples, in the interests of strengthening stability and security in the world.”
