XIAN (China), October 18 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian-Chinese committee for the preparation of regular meetings between the prime ministers of the countries will open its 17th meeting in China on Friday to discuss bilateral cooperation in such spheres as nuclear power, space and production industries. The committee will meet ahead of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev’s visit to China due on October 21-23. Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin will head the Russian delegation at the meeting, Deputy Prime Minister of the Chinese State Council Wang Yang will represent China.
“The committee actually sums up the results of work of all subcommittees and working groups. The co-chairs of the committee will have a bilateral meeting. The committee will hold a plenary meeting, at which the heads of the subcommittees will deliver speeches,” a source close to the Russian delegation told Itar-Tass. “Mostly important is to discuss practical bilateral cooperation,” he said.
The co-chairs of the Russian-Chinese committee for preparation of regular meetings between the prime ministers of the countries had a working meeting in the Chinese city of Harbin at the end of August. Dmitry Rogozin and Wang Yang discussed broader bilateral relations and joint projects, including the construction of a shipyard in the town of Bolshoi Kamen, Russia’s Primorsky Territory and the creation of a long-haul, wide-body airplane. The countries agreed to form a working group to systematize the cooperation plan in the border regions.
The mechanism of regular meetings between the prime ministers of Russia and China was launched in 1996 upon the agreement between the leadership of the countries. These meetings aim at discussing cooperation in trade and economy, military, scientific-technical, energy, transport, nuclear and other spheres, as well as on major projects and long-term programmes of cooperation of strategic importance.
The Russian-Chinese committee for preparation of regular meetings between the prime ministers was set up in 1997 to put into practice this mechanism. The bilateral committees for humanitarian and energy cooperation work as well.
