“We hope that this visit will contribute to strengthening political confidence and increasing support of Russia and China in the sphere of sovereignty and territorial integrity,” Cheng Gopin told reporters.

Beijing is also expected to “intensify coordination with Russia in the international issues,” the official said.Both countries plan to develop humanitarian exchanges, in particular, in the framework of the Year of youth exchanges between Russia and China, and also jointly prepare for celebrating the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II in 2015.
This will be Li’s first visit to Russia as the premier of the People's Republic of China, during which he is to co-chair the bilateral regular meeting with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
