Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold talks with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping in Beijing on Friday, the Kremlin said Tuesday.

“All bilateral contacts will be held on April 26, there will be a detail meeting with the Chinese President Xi Jinping,” Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov said.

The two presidents will discuss the Eurasian Economic Community’s integration into the Silk Road economic belt as well as ways to give practical dimension to the great Eurasian partnership, which includes both the Eurasian Economic Cooperation and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.

Leaders will discuss bilateral cooperation in the political, commercial, economic and humanitarian fields, he said.

Oshakov said Russia and China are celebrating this year’s 70th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries, adding that next to the upcoming talks in Beijing there is another major event this year, the state visit by the Chinese president to Russia.

He said the visit would be made up of two parts: the state visit to Moscow and the participation of Xi Jinping at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum as an important guest (June 6-7).

The presidential aide also noted that during the upcoming talks in Beijing, the Chinese side will hand over to the Russian president an honorary diploma from the Chinese university of Tsinghua.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Kremlin announced that Putin would hold bilateral talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on April 25 during the latter’s visit to the Russian city of Vladivostok, the first direct contact between Putin and Kim.
