"The terms of supplies of Russian gas to China via the western route are being agreed now though no agreements have been reached yet," he said.
According to Ushakov, the cooperation of the two neighboring countries in the energy sector will be one of the issues on the agenda at the talks.

Russia has been increasing the volume of supplies via the Russian-Chinese oil pipeline, the implementation of the Tianjin Refinery project is under way, the construction of the Power of Siberia gas pipeline is on schedule as it will reach its full capacity in 2020," Presidential aide said.

"We are laying together the new motorway from Europe to Asia across Russia, which will definitely improve motor traffic all over the continent. Throughput capacity of ports in the Primorsky Region will grow and construction of the Moscow - Kazan high speed railway is to be agreed by the year-end. This will be also discussed in Beijing," Ushakov said.
