China is expected to sign an agreement with Kazakhstan on finance, energy and resources cooperation within this year, Premier Wen Jiabao said today.

Countries of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization should join force to cope with the expanding financial crisis, he told reporters after the National People's Congress closed its annual session.

He added these countries should strengthen cooperation in a number of areas, such as energy, resources, infrastructure, agriculture and high technologies.
