"At Russian-Chinese talks at the highest level, it is planned to discuss pressing issues of developing bilateral relations in different spheres," Ushakov said. "A package of around 40 bilateral documents has been prepared for signing during the visit," he added.
A joint statement by the leaders of Russia and China on deepening comprehensive partnership and strategic cooperation is planned to be adopted, Ushakov said.

Talking about military and technical cooperation between Moscow and Beijing, Ushakov said it will also be discussed. Documents "are being prepared" for signing in the energy sphere, he added. "I would not talk about anything concrete right now because everything is being coordinated," Ushakov said.
