Chinese President Hu Jintao wrapped up a state visit to Russia and left St. Petersburg on Saturday for Ukraine.

Hu traveled to St. Petersburg, Russia's second largest city, from Moscow Friday morning and delivered a speech at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

In his speech, the Chinese president said that China would like to make joint efforts with other countries to address major world economic challenges.

Hu started his trip to Russia in Moscow on Wednesday, where he met with President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on the development of the strategic and cooperative partnership between the two nations during the next decade.

Hu's visit to Russia is of great importance as this year marks the 10th anniversary of the signing of the China-Russia Treaty on Good-neighborliness, Friendship and Cooperation.
