Presidential adviser Yuri Ushakov explained how Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Moscow from March 20-22 will take place. By the way, this is the first official trip of the Chinese leader after his re-election for a third term, APA reports citing Eprime Feed.
– On Monday afternoon, Putin and President Xi will have a bilateral tête-à-tête meeting. They will have dinner together. We attach great importance to an informal and closed conversation: the most sensitive issues in relations between the two countries will be considered, including the international agenda, the adviser noted.
He clarified that on Tuesday, March 21, there will be two more meetings: one in a narrow format, the second in full.
Judging by the fact that only Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, Director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation Dmitry Shugaev, Head of Roscosmos Yuri Borisov and a number of other officials will attend the first talks with the President, it is planned to discuss exactly the issues associated with the army.
The second meeting will be held in full force with all the deputy prime ministers and key ministers.
– It is about the strategic interaction of two partners who trust each other, – explained Ushakov.
The heads of state will sign two documents. One is about “deepening the comprehensive partnership in a new era.” The second is called: “Joint statement on the development plan for key areas of Russian-Chinese economic cooperation until 2030.”
The presidential adviser did not rule out that politicians also discuss the conflict in Ukraine:
– We highly appreciate the restrained position of the Chinese leadership. I am sure that our leader and the Chinese leader will exchange their assessments in the context of the conflict in Ukraine, he said.
