“I hope that both sides will put into practice the two states’ shared opinion on expanding cooperation in energy and other spheres, and will prepare for a regular meeting of the two countries’ leaders in Beijing during an informal summit of APEC members,” said Zhang, who co-chairs the China-Russia Energy Cooperation Committee.
Zhang said he had held a phone conversation with his Russian counterpart Arkady Dvorkovich, deputy prime minister and co-chairman of the China-Russia Energy Cooperation Committee.

Gazprom and the China National Petroleum Corporation on May 21 concluded a $400 billion contract on supply of natural gas to China via the eastern route over a period of 30 years.
The contract came into effect on October 13. The first deliveries of gas to China via the Power of Siberia pipeline will start in late 2018 - early 2019.
Russia and China are also negotiating another route of gas deliveries. Gas traffic to China via the western export route may reach 30 billion cubic meters a year, Gazprom’s CEO Alexei Miller told the media.
In 2015 the countries will sign at least three key documents on a project for Russian natural gas supplies to China via the western route.
The western route will carry gas from fields in western Siberia.
