Meeting with President of China Xi Jinping

November 30, 2015, Paris

Vladimir Putin met with President of the People’s Republic of China Xi Jinping. The two presidents held a meeting following the plenary session of the UN Climate Change Conference.

President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Dear friend and colleague, let me give you my warmest greetings.

You said quite rightly just before that the situation is changing very rapidly. It is therefore a very good thing that we have this chance to meet, talk, and exchange views. I am very pleased to see you.

President of China Xi Jinping (retranslated): It is a great pleasure to see my dear friend. Only two weeks have gone by, and here we meet again.

Yes, rapid change is taking place in the world. I agree completely that we do indeed need to meet on regular basis and discuss and update each other on the issues of concern.
