The Chinese premier is due to pay a visit to the Russian capital on October 12-14.
“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.
“China seeks to enhance the practical cooperation with Russia in the spheres of aviation and space, energy, high-speed railways, finances, innovations and also infrastructure development projects,” Gopin said.
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.
During his three-day visit, the Chinese premier is due to meet with Russia’s upper house (Federation Council) speaker Valentina Matviyenko and Russia’s lower house (State Duma) speaker Sergey Naryshkin.
The meetings between Russian and Chinese prime ministers are held annually. In October 2013, Medvedev met with his Chinese counterpart in Beijing. This year, the 19th bilateral prime ministers' regular meeting will be held in Moscow.
