BEIJING, October 13. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and Premier of the Chinese State Council Li Keqiang will discuss strengthening international cooperation and mutual political support at the 21st regular meeting of the heads of governments of Russia and China scheduled for November, Gui Congyou, Director General of the Chinese Foreign Ministry’s Department of European-Central Asian Affairs, told journalists on Thursday.
"I want to note four main spheres for discussion at the upcoming meeting. Firstly, it is strengthening mutual political support. Secondly, expansion of economic cooperation. Thirdly, humanitarian exchange, and fourthly, strengthening coordination on the global arena," Gui said.
Russian First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov said earlier that Medvedev and Li will meet on November 7-8 in St. Petersburg. One of the issues on the agenda will be preparation of the agreement on creating a large Eurasian economic partnership, which may bring together the member countries of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), India, China, Pakistan, and other countries that are willing to join.
The first stage of the agreement will be the bilateral agreement between Russia and China, or between EAEU and China, that envisages establishing a free trade zone. Such agreement may be signed in the next two years, Shuvalov said.
