Visiting Chinese President Hu Jintao on Thursday called for dedication to the development of China-Russia comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership based on equality, mutual trust, mutual support, common prosperity and lasting friendship.

Hu made the appeal at a music concert in Moscow marking the 10th anniversary of the signing of the China-Russia Treaty of Good-Neighborliness, Friendship and Cooperation.

Hu spoke highly of the development of China-Russia ties under the guidance of the principles and spirit of the treaty over the past decade.

Politically, China and Russia have respected and trusted each other and have pushed their relations toward maturity. The two sides have firmly supported each other on issues concerning each other's sovereignty, security and development interests, especially those pertaining to their core interests, Hu said.

Economically, China and Russia have engaged in practical cooperation that has brought about benefits to both sides, Hu said. Over the past decade, bilateral trade has witnessed a seven-fold increase, reaching nearly 60 billion U.S. dollars in 2010. Cooperation in energy, investment, high technology and military technology has been promoted.

Culturally, China and Russia have learnt each other and deepened friendship between the peoples. The two sides have successfully held a series of large-scale cultural events such as the "China Year in Russia" and "Russia Year in China," and "Chinese Language Year in Russia" and "Russian Language Year in China," consolidating the social and popular foundation for bilateral ties.
