MOSCOW, June 22. /TASS/. During his official visit to Beijing on June 25 Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet with China’s leader Xi Jinping to discuss, among other things, ways of stepping up bilateral cooperation in the international scene, Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov told the media.
"Russia and China adhere to largely similar or close positions literally on all key issues on the international agenda," Ushakov said. Putin and Xi are going to agree to step up cooperation at international sites, first and foremost, at the United Nations, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and BRICS." Also, Ushakov said, the talks in Beijing will touch upon themes related to China’s current presidency of the Group of 20 ahead of the forthcoming G20 summit due in Hangzhou in September.
Also, there will be a discussion of "everything that is related with regional security - the Korean Peninsula, Syrian settlement and measures to maintain peace and stability in Central Asia in conjunction with the Afghan problem and so on and so forth."
Ushakov recalled the forthcoming visit to China was timed for the 15th anniversary of the Russia-China Treaty on Friendship, Neighborliness and Cooperation.
Russia’s delegation going to Beijing is very large one, he added. Among the officials accompanying Putin on that visit will be the chief of the presidential staff, Sergey Ivanov, five deputy prime ministers, some government ministers, representatives of business quarters, etc.
According to Ushakov, over fifty documents are planned for signing during the visit.
"Over 50 documents are currently developed; it will be decided shortly how many of them will be signed," Ushakov said. Negotiations between various authorities and companies of Russia and China continue, he added.
Documents will be partly signed in presence of presidents and partly on sidelines of the summit, Ushakov said.
The visit of the Russian leader to China is expected to be "intense and productive," the official said. The whole range of bilateral and international issues of the agenda will be discussed in Beijing, Ushakov added.
