Leonid Slutsky was awarded the title of Honorary Professor of Jilin University.
Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs Leonid Slutsky:
“I gave a lecture at the Jilin University – one of the leading universities of China – on the state of Russian-Chinese relations. Russia pays maximum attention to the development of strategic cooperation and comprehensive partnership with China, including its regional and parliamentary component.
In recent years, mutual trade turnover has exceeded $ 100 billion. The Russian Federation and China are actively cooperating in the UN, BRICS, and SCO. In the economic sphere, Moscow and Beijing are consistently implementing a line to pair two integration megaprojects – the Eurasian Economic Union and the One Belt, One Way initiative. I believe that Russian-Chinese cooperation can serve as an example of interstate cooperation.
I am grateful to my Chinese colleagues for conferring the title of Honorary Professor of Jilin University. It’s a great honor for me.”
