The speaker of the Russian State Duma (lower house of parliament) on Thursday held talks with Wang Yang, the Communist Party of China chief of Guangdong province.

Gryzlov, who also chairs the ruling party United Russia, told Wang the relationship between Russia and China is at its best historical stage.

He said the strategic partnership of cooperation between the two countries has been demonstrated on numerous occasions and the deepened exchanges between the two nations' ruling parties have enhanced the Sino-Russian friendship.

Gryzlov stressed that the United Russia party highly values the strategic cooperation with China's Communist Party. He said that regular exchanges between the two parties would produce more achievements.

Wang, also a member of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau who was leading a CPC delegation on a goodwill visit to Russia, agreed that interactions between the two ruling parties have injected new momentum into the bilateral practical cooperation.

He said the cooperation program between northeast China and Russia's far east and east Siberian regions, approved by leaders of the two countries last year, bears great significance for the Sino-Russian cooperation.

China will work with Russia to continue advancing collaboration in various areas and to boost the strategic partnership of cooperation to a higher level, he said.
