Chinese President Xi Jinping and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin agreed on Sunday to appropriately deal with the latest nuclear test conducted by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
The two leaders agreed to stick to the goal of denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula and keep close communication and coordination to deal with the new situation.
Xi and Putin also called for joint efforts to promote world peace and development during the meeting.
Putin is in the southeastern coastal city of Xiamen to attend the ninth BRICS Summit scheduled for September 3-5.
“I hope President Putin will have a beautiful memory of the trip to Xiamen, and I believe we will start the next golden decade of the BRICS countries,” Xi said.
It was the fourth meeting between the two leaders this year.
