Putin heads to Beijing for state visit with birthday buddy Xi Jinping

The two leaders also signed a statement saying that "in conditions of a growing global instability and uncertainty" Russian Federation and China will "deepen their consultations on strategic stability issues".

Further underlining the relationship's importance, the visit marks Putin's first overseas trip since he began his new term in office a month ago.

Xi described China-Russia comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination as "mature, stable and solid".

"I have been Russia's worst nightmare", Trump said, in apparent reference to accusations that he has been soft on Moscow. "Russia is less interested in this format than others".

This is weak. [Valdimir] Putin is not our friend and he is not the President's buddy.

Putin previously gave Xi some fancy neckware- the Order of St Andrew the Apostle-in 2017.

The G-7 summit is shaping up to be the most acrimonious in years, putting pressure on Justin Trudeau as host to bridge a divide between Trump and Europe, with Japan's Shinzo Abe poised to fall somewhere in the middle. "The quality of the bilateral ties has been enhanced", Wang said.

He noted that Russian Federation appreciates China's efforts to promote cooperation among SCO members after taking over the SCO rotating presidency and supports China in hosting a successful summit in Qingdao.

"Myself and President Putin agreed, in the face of a complex global situation, that China and Russian Federation will increase mutual support and coordination in worldwide affairs, and deepen strategic cooperation".

Mr. Putin's objectives are plain: to restore Russian Federation to global greatness at the expense of the United States and to divide Europe by weakening North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the European Union.

Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin attend a welcome ceremony outside the Great Hall of the People in Beijing on June 8.

Xi said the two countries have "always firmly taken the development of relations as a priority direction".

The two countries will support worldwide community's joint efforts to cope with terrorism, extremism and other traditional and new threats and challenges, said the statement.

They vowed to "expand counter-terrorism cooperation", boost contacts between their militaries and encourage joint worldwide efforts to fight terrorism "without any double standards".

Trudeau said he would continue to stand up for Canadian dairy producers and the country's supply management system.

Putin told reporters on Friday that the two leaders had discussed the situation on the Korean peninsula.

Nuclear power deals signed by the two leaders in Beijing - the biggest such cooperation agreements between the two countries that were reached after more than two years of negotiation - cover three projects including the Tianwan plant in Jiangsu and the Xudabao facility in Liaoning, state-run China National Nuclear Corporation said in a statement.
