During the talks, the two parties exchanged views on major international issues and the further development of strategic partnership and interaction between Russia and China.

Both sides agreed that their close bilateral cooperation on global issues has helped maintain regional and world peace, safety and stability.

The two countries acknowledged that in order to further enhance strategic mutual trust and improve the security situation around the global, the two sides should chart the development of Sino- Russian relations for the next 10 years from a strategic and comprehensive perspective.
