International intellectual elites in Shanghai discuss Sino-Russian relations

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the strategic partnership between China and Russia. It is also the 15th anniversary of the Treaty of Good Neighborliness and Friendly Cooperation signed between the two great powers. In March, over 40 Chinese scholars and 20 Russians gathered at Shanghai's East China Normal University to discuss the opportunities and challenges facing Sino-Russian relations.

Experts from both sides believe that the China-Russian relationship is maturing in political, economic and cultural aspects following achievements in the Sino-Russian cooperation such as the "constructive partnership" of 1992 and the "strategic partnership" of 1996 that have lead to positive interactions and frequent official visits.
