China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi has arrived in Moscow on Tuesday with an official visit at the invitation of his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov. One of the key aims of the visit is to prepare for the upcoming visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping to Moscow on May 9.

"Both sides stress the importance of increasing the effectiveness of joint efforts in countering global and regional challenges, of ensuring the sustainable development of the world economy. The Chinese side actively facilitates Russia’s presidency in SCO and BRICS," the foreign ministry said.
