Speaker of the Russian State Duma (lower house of parliament) Boris Gryzlov on Friday held talks here with Chen Zhili, vice chairwoman of the Standing Committee of China's National People's Congress (NPC).

Chen arrived here on Thursday heading a Chinese delegation to participate in the inauguration of the sixth China-Russia Women's Culture Week as well as the fourth Women Forum between China and Russia.

Chen told Gryzlov that the continuous boosting of Sino-Russian strategic partnership of cooperation is in the fundamental interests of the two countries.

China is willing to conduct multi-layer, multi-sector and multi-faceted cooperation with Russia, and keep injecting new impetus into the deepening of bilateral relations, said Chen, also chairwoman of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF).

The China-Russia Women's Culture Week, as a regular mechanism for bilateral interactions, has become a pivotal platform for Sino-Russian cultural exchanges, in particular the exchanges between women, and thus will play an active role in consolidating the social basis of the friendship between China and Russia from generation to generation, she said.

Gryzlov, who recently paid a successful visit to China, hailed the relationship between Russia and China as at their best historical stage. He said the two countries shared a broad prospect in the cooperative projects of oil, gas and nuclear energy.

With collective efforts from both sides, said Gryzlov, Russia and China would tide over the aftermath of the global financial crisis and make new breakthroughs in bilateral cooperation, he said.

Chen on Friday also exchanged views with Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Zhukov on bilateral relations and women interactions.
