The meeting between the newly elected Chinese president and Russian President Vladimir Putin was held under "friendly atmosphere," Morgulov told the Interfax news agency.

The diplomat said the two leaders vowed to strengthen their personal contacts in the future.

Meanwhile, a strategic task facing the two partners now is to "convert political mutual understanding and mutual trust into specific cooperation results in practical areas," Morgulov said.

To reach this goal, China and Russia should should strengthen their business ties and diversify their bilateral trade structure, increase mutual investment and facilitate cooperation in the fields of energy, forestry, agriculture and environmental protection, Morgulov said.

Morgulov also highlighted Russia-China high-tech cooperation, which includes space, aircraft construction and innovation.
