    BEIJING, October 10 (Itar-Tass) — Russia and China have entered the final phase in the negotiations on the crationt of long-range plane project, RF Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Zhukov told journalists on the results of the 15th meeting of the Russian-Chinese commission for the preparation of regular meetings between the two countries’ governments.

    “We’ve come to grips with discussing the project to create a long-haul wide-body plane,” said Zhukov. “Our Chinese partners have taken a long time to consider if they should engage in cooperation with us, and now we are closely dealing with this.”

    The RF deputy prime minister also said that another project on the creations of a heavy helicopter is being actively discussed at present.

    According to Zhukov, the issues of energy resources supply to China were not discussed on Monday. A special venue – the energy dialogue forum have been created to address these issues, he said.

    “Today, we have not discussed these issues at the meeting of the commission for the preparation of the meetings of the prime ministers. They will be discussed within the prime ministers’ dialogue and at their meeting,” the RF deputy prime minister said.

    RF Prime Minister Vladimir Putin will pay a working visit to Beijing on October 11-12 at the invitation of Premier of the Chinese State Council Wen Jiabao. During the visit, Putin will take part in the 16th regular meeting of the heads of government of Russia and China in Beijing and have a conversation with Chinese President Hu Jintao, the RF government’s press service reported earlier. “During Russian-Chinese talks, the sides plan to discuss a wide range of issues of economic, scientific, technical and humanitarian cooperation. Special attention will be paid to the improvement of the mutual trade infrastructure, expansion of investment interaction and cooperation in highly technological fields, and implementation of long-term projects in the field of energy. The sides will also exchange opinions on topical international and regional problems,” it said.

    Leave China alone in this.

    If the Russians need a partner for this, perhaps they should consider India.

    After all, the two countries have extensive cooperation in the field of bla bla....

    I don't think so. Even Ukraine is on-board, rumor says.

    Russia maintains its interests wisely. Be political motives, military relationships, arms market. They are doing it very well.

    This kinna cooperation between China and Russia is hardly possible. Russia is not that silly to give away its advance strategic technology--long rage projection capability. China does not want to spend money in a project which does not include Russia sharing its core technologies. We've witnessed so many of this "new deals" between China and Russia, but the validity of these news are yet confirm. For those who think Russian are doing well in these day, perhaps they should think again as many high ranking Russian officials might disagree.

    Russian PM begins China visit, $1 trillion gas deal on agendaBy Haolan Hong and Jaime FlorCruz, CNN
    October 11, 2011 -- Updated 0732 GMT (1532 HKT)

    Beijing (CNN) -- Russia's Prime Minister Vladimir Putin arrived in Beijing Tuesday, kicking off a two-day visit to China, his first state visit since announcing his intention to contest the Russian presidency next March.

    Aside from meeting his counterpart Chinese premier Wen Jiabao in the 16th Regular Meeting between the two Prime Ministers, Putin will also meet with Chinese President Hu Jintao and other Chinese leaders.

    Talks are expected to include negotiations on a natural gas deal worth $1 trillion that has been stalled by disagreements over price. The deal would see Russia supply China with up to 68 billion cubic meters of gas every year.

    "If the deal can be reached, the trade volume will increase significantly, and this will change the fact that the economic cooperation between the two countries lags behind the political cooperation," said Zhao Huasheng, director of the Center for Russia and Central Asia Studies at Fudan University.

    "Together with cooperation in other economic fields, China and Russia will become real strategic partners in economic terms."

    Putin's arrival in Beijing comes less than three weeks after he announced his bid to reclaim the Russian presidency next year.

    "The fact that Putin may become next Russian president indeed adds some political color to this visit, and its impact on bilateral relation will definitely go beyond the impact of a regular state visit," Zhao said.

    "The meeting to some extent will set the keynote for the China-Russia relation in future. It can be described as the start of China-Russia relation in 'new Putin era'," he added.

    Experts say economic cooperation between the two countries will dominate the meeting agenda.

    "Since this is mainly a meeting between the two premiers, this visit will be mainly about expanding the economic cooperation and improving trade structure," said Jiang Yi, vice director of Research Center for Russian Diplomacy at China Academy of Social Science, the country's top think tank.

    Recent years have seen a steady increase in trade volume between the two countries. According to the Chinese Ministry of Commerce, bilateral trade volume in the year to July increased by 37.4% to a record $42.2 billion compared to the previous year. The ministry forecasts that the bilateral trade volume will reach a new record in 2011, in excess of $70 billion.

    Among all the economic agendas, energy cooperation stands out as the main focus between Russia, a major energy exporter, and China, the world's biggest energy consumer, according to a 2010 report from the International Energy Agency.

    According to the Chinese Foreign Ministry, during Putin's visit, Chinese vice Premier Wang Qishan will hold an energy negotiation meeting with Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin. "Chinese-Russian energy cooperation is an important part of the two countries' strategic partnership," said Liu Weimin, spokesperson of Foreign Ministry, on Monday during a regular press conference.

    Putin brings with him to China a group of 160 business leaders, including the CEOs of Russian energy giants Gazprom, Rosneft and aluminum producer UC RUSAL.

    China, Russia sign USD 7bln deals ahead of Putin visit
    11 October 2011 | 08:50 | FOCUS News Agency
    Home / World

    Beijing. Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin travels to China Tuesday for talks likely to focus on a gas deal mired in discord, a day after the two countries signed trade deals worth more than USD 7 billion, AFP reports.

    Putin will be accompanied by a 160-member delegation for his two-day visit - his first abroad since he declared a planned Kremlin comeback - during which he will meet his Chinese counterpart Wen Jiabao and President Hu Jintao.

    China's foreign ministry said Tuesday the two countries had already signed 16 economic and trade agreements worth more than USD 7 billion "in the fields of technology transfer, research and development and mineral development".

    It gave no further details of the deals, which were signed at a summit Monday held ahead of Putin's visit.

    Observers say the Russian prime minister may lay out his foreign policy priorities for years to come during the trip, which follows last month's announcement that he plans to reclaim the presidency.

    Putin has paid frequent visits to China - where he is very well known - in his capacities as president and then prime minister since he took power in 1999.

    One fact to keep in mind - probability of going to war with pakis is way higher than going to war with China!! However, we should consider US (these days) more aligned to India's interests, but scenarios change way too often and way too sudden. Hence we should tread carefully and follow the policy of wait and watch, before making any foolish faux pas in haste.
