Russian President Vladimir Putin greeted a Chinese government delegation headed by China's Vice Premier Wang Yang at the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) in Vladivostok on Friday.

Putin congratulated China for having hosted a "spectacular" parade marking the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II and China's victory over Japanese imperialism in Beijing. The event reminded "us of the tragedies of WWII, Chinese heroism and our brotherhood in combat," he added.

During a brief meeting, Putin and Wang stressed the importance of Russian-Chinese joint projects in the Russian Far East. Putin said "cooperation between Russia and China in the Far East region is very interesting, important and has potential."

Wang Yang thanked the Russian president for inviting China to take part in the EEF, and noted that China's President Xi Jinping viewed Chinese participation as significant. Yang headed a government delegation comprising 10 ministers and four governors. He said that at least 60 leading Chinese companies are participating in the forum.

The Eastern Economic Forum, which runs until September 5 is aimed at boosting development in the Russian Far East and the region's economic cooperation with countries in the Asia-Pacific Region. During the forum, the first Cooperation Council of the Far East and North-Eastern Provinces of China is due to begin its work.
