HEFEI / CHINA, October 23 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, who is currently on an official visit in China, has met with the students and faculty members of the Chinese University of Science and Technology in the city of Hefei on Wednesday.
The Russian Head of the Cabinet told the students about natural amenities of Russia, transportation problems in Moscow and the importance of joining forces in difficult situations. To support his words, Medvedev also showed some photographs he took himself.
Medvedev talked, as he had promised his Chinese counterpart - Prime Minister Li Keqiang - the day before, about the way Russian and Chinese emergencies services fought the flooding of the Amur River in the Far Eastern Russian city of Komsomolsk-on-Amur.
“I would like to thank everyone who worked in dangerous conditions, those who responded to our calamity and helped us,” the premier said, stressing that friendship means not only international cooperation, but also mutual hep in extreme situations.
During his improvised lecture, Medevedev told the students about the variety of Russian and Chinese culture and nature.
“I suppose those who have not been to Russia yet have seen some photos of our country in social networks and in the Internet. Many of you probably even wish to visit the country, which is really big and beautiful,” he said. “I would like to show you some photos I took myself, though it is certainly better to see everything with one’s own eyes.”
The first shot on the screen was the view of the Russian capital through a helicopter window. The premier also showed some pictures of the Russian cornfields, the winter in the Russian North, the Tobolsk Kremlin in Siberia, the Black sea and the mountains in Sochi. “By the way, that is the city of Sochi - the place, where the 2014 Olympics will take place,” Medvedev noted.
The University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) is a national research university in Hefei, Anhui, China, under the direct leadership of the Chinese Academy of Sciences . Founded in Beijing in 1958, it was moved to Hefei in the beginning of 1970 during the Cultural Revolution.
USTC has 14 institutes, 27 departments, the Graduate Schools, the Software School, School of Network Education, School of Continuing Education, research institutes in Shanghai and Suzhou. More than 1.5 thousand academics work at the university and above 15 thousand students study there.
