SOCHI, September 23 (Itar-Tass) - President Vladimir Putin met with Zhang Dejiang, Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, on Monday, September 23.
Putin briefed Zhang on the key decisions adopted by the Collective Security Council of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO) earlier in the day.
The president also noted that Russia-China relations were developing not only between the governments but also between the parliaments.
Zhang conveyed to Putin the best regards from his “friend and partner, Chinese President Xi Jinping.” “Our leaders not only maintain close working ties, but you also are good friends.”
He also thanked Putin for the warm reception given to the Chinese delegation at the G20 summit in St. Petersburg in early September.
“I must say that we indeed have a very businesslike and very close personal relationship. This helps in our work. During the G20 [summit] you mentioned, China’s voice sounded very convincingly and weightily,” Putin said.
