BEIJING, June 24. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has arrived on an official visit to Beijing.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi greeted him at the airport.
On Saturday, June 25, Putin is expected to have major talks with the Chinese leaders on a broad spectrum of bilateral and international issues, including the situation in Syria, Afghanistan and on the Korean Peninsula.
Putin came to Beijing from Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan, where the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) had a summit. He also had a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of the conference.
Putin and Xi have had about fifteen meetings, both during visits and in the format of international forums, since 2013. The previous time they held talks was in September 2015 when China marked the 70th anniversary since victory in the war of resistance against Japan and since the end of World War II.
The Kremlin hopes the Russian President's visit to China will be meaty and fruitful. The two sides plan the signing of several dozen documents in the presence of both leaders.
