    Russia plays an important role in the promotion of global economy's stable development, Chinese President Xi Jinping said Sunday.

    HANGZHOU (China), (Sputnik) — At a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the Chinese city of Hangzhou, Xi said:

    "Russia plays an important role in the promotion of healthy and stable development of global economy. I am sure that your participation in the G20 summit will contribute to achieving positive results of this forum."

    The Chinese leader added that the fact that Moscow and China had signed a number of agreements in June proved the determination of the sides to deepen bilateral partnership and showed a common position of the two states in regard to important international and regional issues.

    The G20 summit is taking place in Hangzhou on September 4-5.

    The level of cooperation between Russia and China has drastically increased over the past few years, particularly in the spheres of energy, economy and defense.
