HONG KONG (Sputnik) — Russia will not be able to increase trade turnover with China to $200 billion by 2020, but Moscow will continue to pursue this goal, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said Monday.

"Our presidents agreed that the bilateral trade turnover must reach $200 billion by 2020. We understand, that we are yet unable to reach this level as oil prices have fallen and the trade conditions have changed. But we are still keeping this goal, we need to do that," Dvorkovich said, speaking at the Asia Society forum in Hong Kong.
