MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia and China will sign a joint communique and several other documents on energy, agriculture and space activities after the meeting of Russian Prime Minister Dmirty Medvedev with Chinese State Council Premier Li Keqiang, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Prikhodko said on Monday.

"…Five protocols under the [Russian] Ministry of Agriculture and China’s General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) on phytosanitary requirements for wheat, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, buckwheat and oat that we export in China [will be signed]. In order to avoid complications, each crop needed a separate inter-agency protocol," Prikhodko told reporters, adding that the parties will also sign a joint communique.
