Commenting on the outcome of the Eastern Economic Forum, Russian Far East Development Minister Alexander Galushka pointed out the similarity of the understanding of economic cooperation priorities in Russia and China.
"The forum participants have formed a new level of dialogue with China […] We have a similar understanding of priorities of economic cooperation [between Russia and China]," Galushka told reporters on Sept. 5.
Galushka said the discussion of the mutual relations between the two countries will continue in the next few days in Dalian, China, where the minister plans to go with Yury Trutnev, Russian deputy prime minister and presidential envoy in the Far East.
"We will develop mutually balanced cooperation, which will be based on the two countries' wellbeing. We can achieve more if we work together than if we work separately," Galushka said.
