Top legislator Li Zhanshu concluded on Saturday his four-day official goodwill visit to Russia, during which he met with Russian President Vladimir Putin, leaders of Russia's legislative bodies and other Party leaders, with both sides pledging to further promote bilateral ties in the new era.
While meeting with Putin in Vladivostok, where he attended the Russia-hosted Eastern Economic Forum, Li, chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, the nation's top legislature, conveyed President Xi Jinping's cordial greetings and best wishes to Putin and hailed the development of the China-Russia comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination for a new era.
