BEIJING - Vice-Premier Li Keqiang on Monday reiterated Beijing's commitment to push forward the China-Russia comprehensive strategic and cooperative partnership, calling for more frequent people-to-people exchanges between the two neighbors.

Li made the remarks while meeting members of the China-Russia Friendship, Peace and Development Commission, which will hold its ninth plenary session on Tuesday at the Diaoyutai State Guest House in Beijing.

"We will unswervingly push forward the China-Russia comprehensive strategic and cooperative partnership regardless of changes in both the international and domestic situations," Li said, noting that the two countries have become each other's most important strategic cooperative partner.

He urged the commission to continue to expand exchanges in various fields to build understanding and trust between the two peoples, especially young people.

Li said he hoped the commission would coordinate with government and play a unique role in realizing China and Russia's blueprints for the next 10 years, especially in the fields of economic and humanitarian cooperation.

The China-Russia Friendship, Peace and Development Commission was established in 1997, and has since played an important role in consolidating and expanding the China-Russia strategic cooperative partnership.

It has seven sub-commissions in the fields of regional cooperation, business cooperation, cultural and academic exchanges, women and young people.

Analysts noted that with the efforts of both sides, China-Russia relations are developing comprehensively, healthily, stably and rapidly.
