New Delhi: Chinese President Xi Jinping will visit Russia next week at the invitation of Vladimir Putin, Beijing’s foreign ministry said on Friday.
It will be Xi first Russia visit in the last 4 years.
” At the invitation of Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, President Xi Jinping will pay a state visit to Russia from march 20 to 22,” the foreign ministry said in a statement.
In 2019, Jinping visited Russia last time, though, both leaders had a meeting at a regional security gathering in Uzbekistan in September last year.
In a statement Kremlin said, Both leaders will talk about strategic cooperation.
“The two leaders will discuss deepening the exhaustive partnership and strategic cooperation between two neighbouring nations,” Kremlin said.
China and Russia will sign important bilateral documents, Kremlin added.
This visit is scheduled amid an ongoing tussle between West countries and Russia after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
China has portrayed itself as a neutral party so far in the matter of the Ukraine-Russia conflict, but western countries have criticised Beijing for giving tactical support to Moscow.
China and Russia are strategic allies, with both sides frequently calling their relationship a “no limits” partnership.
