According to the Kremlin press service, Chinese President Xi Jinpin invited Russian President Vladimir Putin to hold an official visit to China on June, 25.
“It is expected that the two leaders will discuss the development of Russian-Chinese comprehensive partnership and cooperation in trade, economics, investment, scientific-technical and humanitarian spheres,” the statement reads.

At the meeting, the two leaders will also discuss the key issues of the international agenda, the cooperation in multilateral and regional organizations, in particular in the UN, BRICS, the Group of Twenty, as well as the implementation of the agreements to be reached on the eve of the SCO summit in Tashkent to be held from 23 to 24 June.
