“Our meeting last February promoted Russian-Chinese cooperation. Our countries’ commissions and agencies have been very active in implementing the results of the previous meeting in Sochi, thereby laying a solid basis for the talks in Shanghai,” Xi said.
“We have signed a joint statement geared to expanding cooperation in a variety of fields, as well as the coordination of diplomatic efforts with the aim of enhancing Russian-Chinese strategic cooperation,” he said.
