Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi and his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov held talks here on Sunday and pledged to push ahead with relations between their two countries.
The two ministers, who are here for the annual forum of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), said the Sino-Russian strategic cooperative partnership has maintained a sound momentum of development this year.
China and Russia have achieved breakthroughs in their pragmatic cooperation and continued to deepen their strategic cooperation, they said.
The two important meetings between Chinese President Hu Jintao and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in Washington and Lima have injected new impetus into bilateral relations and cooperation in international affairs, the ministers said.
They agreed that China and Russia should make concerted efforts to implement consensus reached by the two heads of state, maintain exchanges of high-level visits, deepen mutual political trust, and continue to firmly support each other on issues related to their core interests.
Yang and Lavrov also agreed that the two countries should boost their pragmatic operation and enhance coordination in international and regional affairs.
