Chinese and Russian senior officials agreed to further promote the development of China-Russia relations of strategic cooperation and partnership at a reception here Friday.

Russia's embassy in China held a reception Friday to celebrate Russia's national day, which falls on June 12.

This year coincides with the 65th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, and also Chinese Language Year in Russia, said Hua Jianmin, vice chairman of China's National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee, in addressing the reception.

There are many challenges and opportunities for China and Russia during this time of great development, changes and adjustment, said Hua, who is also the Chinese president of the China-Russia Friendship, Peace and Development Commission.

China is willing to work with Russia to continuously advance relations of strategic cooperation and partnership, he added.

Russian Ambassador to China Sergey Razov said Russia-China relations have developed very well in recent times. There has been progress with regard to political mutual respect, trust, and support, economic and trading cooperation as well as cultural cooperation, he said.

"I believe bilateral ties will become even stronger through the joint efforts of Russia and China," Razov said.
