He noted that the heads of state would continue to discuss topical issues.

The President of the People's Republic of China is making a state visit to Russia from 5 to 7 June.

Chinese Deputy Foreign Minister Zhang Hanhui recalled that Vladimir Putin had become an honorary doctor of Tsinghua University during his visit to China in April.

“These two institutions of higher education are the alma mater of the two leaders. We hope that this will strengthen the friendship between them and also contribute to the deepening of cooperation in the field of education,” he added.
