    Russia is preparing proposals on boosting cooperation with China in all fields, including political and economic, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Thursday.

    BEIJING (Sputnik) — The Russian foreign minister also conveyed warm greetings to Xi from Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is set to visit the Chinese capital in June.

    "We are preparing proposals in all areas of our cooperation to further deepen our cooperation in political, economic, and humanitarian spheres," Lavrov told Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing.

    On November 30, 2015, Putin and Xi agreed to hold regular meetings to coordinate their stances on global events in today’s fast-paced world.

    Russia and China have re-energized their cooperation in recent years, both on a bilateral level and within the framework of regional and global organizations.

    Both countries are members of the BRICS association of five emerging economies — Russia, India, Brazil, China and South Africa, and co-founders of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), a Eurasian economic and security bloc.
