Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are expected to discuss the agenda of the upcoming G8 and G20 summits during Medvedev's upcoming visit to Germany, said a Kremlin official on Friday.

"Medvedev and Merkel will discuss practical issues of the agenda of the upcoming G8 and G20 summits, which are due to start in Canada on June 25-27," the RIA Novosti news agency quoted the unnamed official as saying.

During his two-day visit to Germany, the two leaders will also discuss international issues, such as disarmemenet, Iran's nuclear issue, the Middle East peace process and Afghanistan, said the news agency.

Medvedev said earlier he also expected to discuss bilateral cooperation with Merkel.

The two countries have vowed to strengthen cooperation in high technology, automobile, aircraft industry and shipbuilding.
