Meeting with President of China Xi Jinping

November 20, 2016, Lima

Vladimir Putin met in Lima with President of China Xi Jinping. The two leaders discussed Russian-Chinese cooperation, including cooperation in trade and the economy.


President of Russia Vladimir Putin:

I am also very happy to meet my friend again, this time in Lima.

Indeed, we always have things to talk about with our Chinese colleagues in such a broad format.

I would like to recall that we are looking forward to your official visit to Russia next year. You invited me to come to China in May for the events marking the implementation of your initiatives, The Silk Route and One Belt, One Way. We have looked into our schedules and will be happy to accept your invitation.

As for current affairs, I agree with your assessment. Heads of government had a meeting in St Petersburg quite recently, and 25 intergovernmental documents were signed elaborating earlier agreements.

What we are doing is not in vain, because we can see improving dynamics in our trade and economic relations. It concerns both advanced goods and high-tech production areas. We are moving forward in those areas, regardless of any problems, and we are very happy about it. It speaks to the fact that we are not working idly, but are reaching the objectives we set before us.

I am very glad to meet you again here in Lima, and to speak about the whole range of our relations.

Thank you.
