(ECNS) -- Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin confirmed at the daily press conference on Friday that Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin will visit China. During his visit, China and Russia will have an in-depth exchange of views on bilateral relations, practical cooperation and issues of mutual interest, Wang said.
Mishustin will also travel to Shanghai after visiting Beijing, according to Wang.
China and Russia are each other’s largest neighbors and major emerging markets, and the cooperation between the two countries boasts strong resilience, ample potential and wide space.
In March this year, President Xi Jinping paid a successful state visit to Russia, and the two heads of state reached important common understandings on the growth of bilateral relations and cooperation in various fields, Wang said.
He also said that China hopes that Mishustin's visit will further enhance our cooperation, deepen cultural and people-to-people and sub-national exchanges, and give a strong boost to global economic recovery.
