China News Agency, Beijing, June 5 (Reporter Guo Jinchao) On the morning of 5 June, Chinese President Xi Jinping departed by special plane to Moscow, the capital of Russia, for a three-day visit to Russia.
From 5 to 7, Xi Jinping will pay a state visit to Russia and attend the 23rd St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Russia. This visit is also the first state visit to Russia since Xi Jinping was re-elected as President of the State. It is a milestone in the development of bilateral relations. Over the past 70 years, China-Russia relations have gone through both ups and downs, gone through trials and hardships, and come out with a "correct way to get along", which has become a model of the relations between big powers. As Xi Jinping said during his meeting with Russian President Putin in Beijing in April this year, in the past 70 years, bilateral relations have gone through both storms and hardships, and have become a pair of major powers with the highest degree of mutual trust, the highest level of cooperation and the highest strategic value.
The top-level design and strategic leadership of the heads of state of China and Russia are crucial to the success of Sino-Russian relations as a "model friendship". The heads of state of China and Russia always have the practice of annual exchange visits. Last June, Putin chose China as the first country to make a state visit during his new presidency. A year later, Xi Jinping's trip to Russia was not only his eighth trip to Russia since 2013, but also his meeting with Putin in Moscow.
"Since 2013, President Putin and I have met nearly 30 times on bilateral and multilateral occasions, and have made many phone calls and exchanged letters. I often happily recall every interaction I had with President Putin." Before the visit, Xi Jinping said in a joint interview with Russian mainstream media on the 4th. Speaking of personal friendship with Putin, Xi Jinping also said, "President Putin is my closest foreign colleague, my best confidant friend, and I cherish this deep friendship with President Putin very much."
Li Hui, China's ambassador to Russia, said: "The two heads of state often come and go like relatives, which is unique in the exchanges between big powers. It not only writes a new chapter in the diplomacy of the heads of state of China and Russia, but also leads the bilateral relations into the best period in history."
On this visit, Zhang Hanhui, Vice Foreign Minister of China, said that President Xi Jinping and President Putin would comprehensively sum up the development experience of bilateral relations in the past 70 years, make strategic plans for the future development of bilateral relations, and promote the upgrading of bilateral relations.
In the context of the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries, in addition to state activities, during his visit, Xi Jinping and Putin will also attend a series of colorful cultural exchanges such as the celebration conference of the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Russia, and many arrangements have aroused expectations.
Geng Shuang, spokesman of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, gave a "dramatic spotlight" at a regular press conference in Beijing on the 4th. He revealed that the two heads of state will attend the opening ceremony of the Panda Pavilion for the pandas "Ruyi" and "Ding Ding".
According to reports, when Xi Jinping and Putin met in Beijing in April this year, they officially announced that China would provide Russia with a pair of giant pandas for joint research. On April 29, the giant pandas "Ruyi" and "Ding Ding" left their hometown of Sichuan and went to Russia to start a 15-year sojourn life. At present, they have successfully settled in Moscow Zoo. Geng Shuang expressed his belief that they will bring joy to the Russian people, serve as a bridge and link to enhance the friendship between the two peoples, and add a joyful and friendly atmosphere to the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Russia.
Under the leadership of the diplomacy of the head of state, Sino-Russian cooperation has been deepening and the relations between the two countries have become closer and closer. The frequent interaction between Xi Jinping and Putin has created many "firsts" in Sino-Russian diplomatic relations. During this visit, Xi Jinping will attend the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum for the first time.
In recent years, it has become a common practice for China and Russia to support each other in hosting major home diplomatic activities. Last September, Xi Jinping traveled to Vladivostok, the Russian Far East city, to attend the Fourth Oriental Economic Forum. In April this year, Putin came to China to attend the second summit forum on "one belt and one road" international cooperation. The two heads of state held their first meeting in the year. The mutual support of "you come and I go" time after time highlights the particularity, importance and high level of Sino-Russian relations, which not only promotes the benign interaction between major powers, but also has a far-reaching impact on the establishment of new international relations.
St. Petersburg International Economic Forum is a large international economic forum held by Russia. The theme of the plenary session of the Forum is "Building an Agenda for Sustainable Development". In recent years, in the face of sustained economic and financial sanctions in the West, Russia, through the platform of St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, has voiced its advocacy of fair competition and its opposition to protectionism. China disclosed that Xi Jinping would address the plenary session of the Forum to elaborate on China's important proposals in the field of sustainable development. At that time, people from all walks of life will pay close attention to how he will express China and communicate with the world.
At the critical time point of the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Russia, with the visit in the next three days, how the new interaction between the two countries will promote the opening of a new era of higher level and greater development of Sino-Russian relations at a new historical starting point has been written down.
