MOSCOW, November 6. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin hopes for close cooperation with China at the upcoming APEC summit due to be held in Beijing next week.
“We intend to pursue our traditionally close, constructive cooperation with President of the People’s Republic of China Xi Jinping during the future discussions, including in the implementation of the Summit decisions,” Putin said on Thursday.
“I am convinced that the APEC leaders meeting in Beijing will make a great contribution to the further consolidation of an equal and mutually beneficial partnership in the region,” he said.
The 2014 APEC Economic Leaders meeting in Beijing on November 10-11 will be one of the central events in the Asia Pacific Region this year, Putin said.
China’s chairmanship prepared several initiatives - a “roadmap” to create a Asia Pacific free trade zone, a plan on concrete steps towards deepening overall interrelationship of the region and contribution to innovation and structural reforms, he said.
“I would like to stress the consistency of current agenda with the issues that we proposed for discussion in Vladivostok in 2012. I think that it demonstrates that Russia and China are both interested in the common development of the region in order to promote comprehensive, sustainable and innovative growth,” Putin said.
