BEIJING, October 31. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, will hold bilateral talks during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Peru’s capital, Lima, in November. Russian Ambassador to China, Andrei Denisov, informed TASS that this will be their fifth meeting this year.
"As for our leaders, we hope that the schedule they established in previous years when they met at least five times will be preserved. We know that four meetings between the two countries’ leaders were held earlier this year, including the talks in India’s Goa as part of the BRICS summit in mid-October," he said.
"The fifth meeting will be held in the capital of Peru, Lima, at the APEC summit. The two leaders’ talks will be held on the sidelines of the forum as well. They will thus adhere to their usual schedule - five meetings per year," the ambassador said.
According to Denisov, 2017 will be a busy year in terms of bilateral contacts. "Of course, at the moment it is a bit too early to talk about this. Nevertheless, according to our preliminary estimates, next year will be no less busy in terms of political contacts, including high-level and top-level ones," he added.
