BEIJING, June 25. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will on Saturday discuss at talks with the Chinese leadership large-scale bilateral projects, Eurasian integration and the key international issues, including the situation in Syria, Afghanistan and on the Korean Peninsula.
Putin arrived on an official visit to Beijing the day before, following a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in Tashkent. During that event, Putin also met with Xi in the bilateral and trilateral (with the Mongolian leader) formats.
The Russian president last was to Beijing in September 2015.
The Kremlin said it hopes the visit will be fruitful. A few dozens of bilateral agreements are due to be signed in Beijing in the presence of both leaders.
In an interview with China’s Xinhua news agency shortly before the visit, Putin noted the unprecedented level of mutual trust underlying the two countries’ cooperation.
