Russia is interested in further strengthening comprehensive partnership and strategic cooperation with China, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said at a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Tuesday.

"We in Russia are sincerely interested in further strengthening the comprehensive partnership and strategic cooperation with China. Our relations are at the highest level in our centuries-long history and have an impact on shaping the global agenda - in the logic of multipolarity," the Russian prime minister said.

Mishustin noted that the meeting was attended by many members of the Russian government, heads of ministries and agencies. According to him, all of them interact directly with their Chinese counterparts and promote joint projects in supervised areas in real time.

"Coordination of our common work is ensured by the mechanism of regular meetings between the heads of the governments of Russia and China. This is a unique format that includes five intergovernmental commissions and more than 80 subcommissions and working groups," Mishustin noted.
