Xi was accompanied by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko, who was also the first to welcome him on Monday, as well as other officials.

The meetings lasted several hours and ended with the approval of a joint declaration on strengthening cooperation and the signing of a series of documents to strengthen ties. EFE
