BEIJING, Dec. 13 (Xinhua) -- The presidents of China and Russia voiced their wishes for the expansion of bilateral people-to-people relations in congratulatory messages delivered to a high-level meeting on Tuesday.

The ninth plenary session of the China-Russia Friendship Committee for Peace and Development (CRFCPD) gathered scores of senior officials and specialists from the two countries, including Assistant Foreign Minister Zhang Kunsheng and Russian Ambassador to China Sergei Razov.

In his message, President Hu Jintao said he hopes the committee can pursue innovation, expand areas of cooperation and promote the role played by local communities in boosting people-to-people exchanges.

Hu also hailed the contributions made by the committee in consolidating bilateral people-to-people understanding.

During Hu's visit to Russia in June, both countries agreed to dedicate themselves to the development of a comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership based on equality, mutual trust, mutual support, common prosperity and lasting friendship.
