ST. PETERSBURG - Chinese Premier Li Keqiang arrived in St. Petersburg Monday for a three-day official visit to Russia.

The visit comes as the two countries are embracing the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties and ushering in a new era in their relations, according to Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng.

During the visit, Li and Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev will co-chair the 24th regular meeting between Chinese and Russian heads of government.

The meeting will focus on two major objectives, according to Le. The first is to promote the implementation of the major consensus reached by the two countries' heads of state, deepen the integration of interests, and consolidate the material basis of bilateral relations.

The second is to contribute the two countries' wisdom to and voice their support for safeguarding multilateralism, open economy, and liberalization and facilitation of trade and investment.
