Updated: 2005-12-08 21:08

Before meeting with Hu, Medvedev, also president of the organizing committee of the Russia Year in China, had held talks with Chinese State Councilors Tang Jiaxuan and Chen Zhili. The two sides agreed to hold large-scale cultural activities within the coming two years, a move to strengthen bilateral strategic partnership.

The Russia Year in China scheduled for 2006 and the China Year in Russia for 2007 were in a joint statement during Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to China last year.

The two goodwill programs cover a wide spectrum of areas including culture, education, economy, political systems and traditional customs of the two countries.

Hu said he hoped the organizing committees of the two countries and relevant departments would improve coordination to ensure the cultural programs full success.

The Chinese president also hailed China-Russia relations, saying that China is ready to further pragmatic cooperation with Russia and try to score new progress in cooperation on economy, trade, energy, science and technology.

Hu also expressed his hope that the two countries would upgrade their strategic cooperative partnership to a new level through closer cooperation in regional and international affairs and jointly safeguard world and regional peace, stability and development.

In response, Medvedev said Russia-China relations are currently at a high level with vibrant cooperation in economy, trade and cultural areas and the two also share many consensus on key international issues.

He said he believed that the Cultural Year programs to be held in the next two years would be successful.
