SAINT PETERSBURG, Russia, Nov. 7 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin held talks here Monday on major issues of common concern, including bilateral relations and the current international political and economic situation.

Wen said the two countries in recent years have witnessed frequent high-level exchanges, growing political trust, fruitful economic and trade cooperation, and close coordination in international affairs.

In face of complicated international political and economic situations, China and Russia, as neighbors and world powers, should further strengthen their strategic coordination and consolidate friendship, Wen said.

Sound China-Russia relations are not only in line with the fundamental interests of the two peoples, but also of significance to global peace and development, he added.

Both China and Russia are in favor of diversity of the world and against dominance of world affairs by any power or group of powers, Wen said.

China hopes that the two countries could support each other, help each other and join hands to meet challenges, said the Chinese leader. The two countries should work together to push for the democratization of international politics and for a new fair and just international political and economic order, he said.
