    Chinese state media responded to the recent visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the Asian nation, viewing it as underscoring the development of a bilateral partnership of a strategic nature between Moscow and Beijing.

    BEIJING (Sputnik) On Friday, the Russian leader arrived in China at the invitation of President Xi Jinping. During the visit, the Russian delegation signed a number of cooperation agreements on Saturday and discussed a wide range of bilateral and international issues. Putin and Xi also signed statements on strengthening global strategic stability and cooperation in the area of information development.

    The visit took place at an important juncture in bilateral relations and provides grounds for the further development of a strategic partnership between Moscow and Beijing, the Chinese People's Daily newspaper reported.

    The Xinhua news service highlighted three trends in bilateral relations that were marked by Putin's visit to the Asian nation.

    According to the news service, the first trend implies the pursuit of a more fair and rational world order that is conveyed by the tone of the joint statements.

    The second trend is the strengthening of mutual trust and strategic cooperation that can be seen in the frequency of Putin's visits to China and Xi's to Russia, as well as by meetings between the two leaders at various international forums.

    Numerous agreements in different areas, including agriculture, space and energy prove Moscow and Beijing's willingness to cooperate at a high and comprehensive level, Xinhua concluded.

    The Chinese Global Times newspaper reported that the statements signed by Putin and Xi confirmed the high-level resolve against US hegemony shared by the two leaders.
