Visiting Chinese President Hu Jintao said in Moscow on Thursday that China and Russia have agreed to further advance their bilateral pragmatic cooperation in the fields of trade, culture and international affairs.

The agreement came as the two countries established a comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership based on equality, mutual trust, mutual support, common prosperity and friendship from generation to generation, according to Hu.

The Chinese president made the remarks at a joint press briefing with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev after they held talks Thursday afternoon.

The two sides issued Thursday a joint statement on international situation and major international issues, and also a joint statement on the 10th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of China-Russia Good-Neighborliness, Friendship and Cooperation.

Hu described his talks with Medvedev as "frank, friendly and fruitful" , in which they exchanged views and reached important consensus on developing bilateral links and major regional and international issues of common concern.

Hu said both sides agreed to regard development of China-Russia relations as a priority direction of their foreign policies. He said the two sides will continue to abide by the spirit of the Treaty of China-Russia Good-neighborliness, Friendship and Cooperation.

They will always adhere to equality and mutual trust, mutual benefit, mutual respect and mutual support. Hu said the two sides will stick to friendship from generation to generation and continuously enhance political mutual trust.

He said the two sides will also improve the existing mechanism of cooperation and expand pragmatic cooperation in all areas.

Hu said he and Medvedev decided to give priority to strengthening pragmatic cooperation in a bid to realize the goal of increasing bilateral trade volume to 100 billion U.S. dollars by 2015. On this basis, Hu said the two countries will develop a plan to raise the figure to 200 billion U.S. dollars by 2020.
