He said that the Chinese Foreign Minister would meet with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov and would take part in a regular meeting of the Foreign Ministers' Council of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO).
Li Zhaoxing will also meet in Moscow with the Foreign Ministers of Kazakhstan, Kirghizia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan (alongside with China and Russia they are members of the SCO) and will exchange views with them on urgent international problems and the further development of the Organisation, director of the information department said.
Characterising the development of Chinese-Russian relations after Russia and China signed the Treaty of Friendship, Good-Neighbourliness and Cooperation in 2001, Kung Quan underscored that the relations between the two countries were developing stably, and cooperation and coordination of their actions on the most important regional and international problems were growing stronger.
During his foreign trip in the second half of April, the Chinese Foreign Minister will also visit, apart from Russia, Sweden, Finland and Ireland, said Kung Quon.
In Dublin, he added, the Chinese minister will take part in the Asia-Europe sixth meeting which will be held on April 17-18.
