The Chinese premier said his country wants to work with Russia to enhance pragmatic cooperation in various fields.

Li added that the cooperation between the two countries has shown a good development trend, and the volume of investment between Russia and China continues to grow.

The meeting with the Russian prime minister in Beijing marks the first visit by a senior member of the Kremlin to the Chinese capital since the outbreak of the war in Ukraine.

Mishustin said that the relations between Russia and China are at a high level, and are characterized by mutual respect for each other’s interests. The Russian leader also said that Xi Jinping’s visit to Moscow was an affirmation of the special nature of bilateral relations.

When Xi visited Moscow in March, Beijing said the visit was China’s first step in trying to lead a new round of peace talks between Russia and Ukraine.

On the other hand, the intelligence services of the United Kingdom and the United States have already stated that Russia has begun buying weapons from China to try to counter Western support for Ukraine.
