The Prime Minister's message to the Premier of the State Council of China reads, in part:
“In the past decades, friendly China has achieved considerable success in various areas. It is important that the Russian-Chinese comprehensive trust-based partnership and strategic cooperation have reached an unprecedentedly high level.
We are carrying out active coordinated work to implement large-scale joint projects in energy, industry, transport infrastructure, high technology, science, culture, and other areas. Our interregional and cross-border contacts are growing stronger as well. An eventful programme is underway as part of the 2018−2019 reciprocal Years of Russian-Chinese Interregional Cooperation.
I am positive that through our joint efforts we will be able to give a new impetus to further boosting the entire scope of our comprehensive cooperation.”
