MOSCOW - Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said he discussed cooperation in the areas of space, nuclear power and aviation with China's Vice Premier Wang Yang.
"During a meeting with Chinese vice premier that lasted over three hours, we discussed cooperation in space, nuclear and aviation sectors, as well as other areas," Rogozin wrote on his Facebook page on Tuesday.
Both officials are currently in the Russian city of Yekaterinburg, where they are due to attend the third China-Russia Expo industrial exhibition. Over 280 enterprises from 10 Chinese provinces have sent applications to attend the event, including 150 from the Heilongjiang province, which borders Russia and takes up a large part of Russian-Chinese trade.
Rogozin and Wang are set to hold meetings with a number of Russian and Chinese regional heads, as well as the heads of large companies from both countries.
The expo is an annual industrial exhibition held since 2014 within the framework of the Harbin Trade Fair.
