PacNet #11 – Pragmatism dominate Russia-China Relations

When Russian President Vladimir Putin arrives in Beijing today (March 21, Beijing time) for his fourth official visit to China, he will join President Hu Jintao to inaugurate the year-long festivities for China’s “Year of Russia,” which will include more than 200 cultural, business, science, and political activities throughout the “middle kingdom.” This will be reciprocated by Russia’s “China Year” in 2007.
