President Vladimir Putin has suggested that Russian and Chinese foreign ministries consider opening new consular offices.
He specified the sites as Urumchi (the capital of the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous regions in the north-west of China) and Novosibirsk (the south of Western Siberia). Vladimir Putin also suggested widening bilateral cooperation by inviting partners in Kazakhstan and China's special administrative district of Xianggang (Hong Kong). He also pointed to exceptional prospects offered by integration mechanisms of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (composed of Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan). The Russian president expressed the hope that the leadership of the two countries would support all the initiatives on the consolidation of bilateral cooperation. "I am certain that these efforts will meet political backing on the part of the Russian and Chinese leadership, judging by the current level of mutual understanding," said the president. In the opinion of China's Vice-Premier Wu Yi, regional Russian-Chinese cooperation, especially trade and economic relations, has a very promising future. "That Russia has opted for China's Western areas offers quite a lot. This zone is rich in mineral resources, with some items occupying the first place not only in China but in the world as a whole," noted the vice-premier. "We know that the Russian government is now engaged in developing a plan of the Far East's and Siberia's economic development, and I am certain that the current meeting will be beneficial for wider and more effective cooperation between the two countries," said Wu Yi.
