    The current state of partnership between Russia and China is the best example of intergovernmental relations, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — He added that all the issues on which the sides have not reached consensus, are not muted, but rather discussed in order to find a mutually beneficial solution.

    "The Russian-Chinese partnership, the best ever, is an excellent example of the intergovernmental relations in 21 century," the foreign minister said at Russian International Affairs Council conference in Moscow.

    Lavrov was speaking ahead of Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to China in late June. According to the Russian Foreign Minister, the visit will give a powerful impulse to the strategic partnership between the two countries.

    "We are confident that the upcoming visit of President Putin to China in June will give a powerful impetus to the many-sided Russia-Chinese strategic partnership and will further contribute to the realization of its inexhaustible potential," the minister said.

    Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli said on Monday that the plan to strengthen cooperation between China and Russia is expected to be developed during Putin's visit.

    The Russian president is also expected to visit China in September to participate in the G20 summit.
