President Xi Jinping said on Sunday he is ready to join Russian President Vladimir Putin in consolidating political and strategic mutual trust and expanding all-around pragmatic cooperation.
China also has dived into the sharing economy, with ride-sharing company Didi Chuxing buying out Uber's business in China and fast-growing Ofo starting to offer bike rentals in major cities across the United States.
China and Russia have also maintained close and effective coordination in international and regional affairs, and have made important contributions in preserving world peace and stability, Xi said.
"It was the morning of Dec 28, 2013. I was sitting reading a newspaper story for one of my friends intently at the hall, and suddenly I realized others turning their eyes to the direction across my head," said Liu, 74. "I turned back my head and saw President Xi Jinping approaching us."
Putin pledged that his country will join China in making efforts to deepen their comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination and benefit the two peoples.
