As the most important political achievement during his visit, Xi and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin signed a joint statement on elevating the China-Russia ties to a comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination for a new era. "President Trump is my friend and I am convinced he is also not interested in this", Xi said.

The Russian president complained about US efforts to thwart a Russian gas pipeline to Europe and talked about what he called efforts to force Chinese technology company Huawei out of the global market.

China will push ahead the process of economic globalization, uphold the multilateral trade system, endeavor to solve the imbalance and inequality in global economic development, and create more opportunities for developing countries, he said.

Chinese President Xi Jinping on Friday called U.S. President Donald Trump his friend and said he believed the United States was not interested in rupturing economic ties with China.

During the trip, the Chinese president attended almost 20 events in Moscow and St. Petersburg, which has delivered fruitful results, Wang noted.

China and Russian Federation have vowed to strengthen contemporary global strategic stability in a joint statement signed by the two heads of state, Wang noted.

Microsoft reveals surprise new Xbox range ahead of E3 2019
Inside the package, there will be no Fortnite cooperative mode, Salva il Mondo, which will then have to be purchased separately. Since Sony has chose to let go of this E3, Xbox's presentation has become the most important event of the conference.

Xi's state visit comes as the two countries celebrate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties.

Trump ordered tariffs of up to 25% on hundreds of billions of dollars' worth of Chinese exports and his administration is preparing to extend them to $300 billion more - nearly all items shipped to the USA from China.

The two sides agreed to hold the China-Russia year of scientific and technological innovation from 2020 to 2021, in a bid to jointly improve their independent research and development capabilities, Wang said.

"In the same week that President Trump will be having tea with the Queen in London, President Putin will be hosting President Xi in Saint Petersburg".

In the most recent development of the US-Huawei row, Facebook has reportedly stopped pre-installing its apps, including WhatsApp and Instagram, on Huawei devices, even on existing models.

"China is ready to share technological inventions with all partners, in particular 5G technology", Xi told an economic forum in the Russian city of Saint Petersburg.
