Premier Li Keqiang met with visiting Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday, who is in Beijing to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II and the victory of the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression (1937-45).

China is willing to strengthen development strategies and cooperation initiatives of each side, closely coordinating in international and regional issues, Li said.

China is also willing to safeguard the victory results of the anti-Fascist war and international justice with Russia, promoting peace, stability and prosperity for the two countries, the Eurasian continent and the world.

Li said China is willing to cooperate with Russia in various fields, including productivity, infrastructure, energy, aeronautical and space technologies, as well as development in the Far East.

Putin said the two countries share the same position in safeguarding the results of the anti-Fascist war and other major international issues.

Russia is confident in the Chinese economy and Russia-China cooperation, and is willing to advance cooperation with China in energy, aeronautics, petrochemical and other fields, according to Putin.

Putin called for expanding mutual investment, financial insurance, information technology and other newly emerging fields, in a bid to inject new momentum to the economic growth of the two countries.
