Chinese official media "Xinhua News Agency" reported that Medvedev first handed over President Vladimir Putin's personally signed letter to President Xi Jinping, conveying Putin's friendly greetings and best wishes to Xi Jinping.

Medvedev warmly congratulated Xi Jinping on being re-elected as General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee and congratulated the 20th CPC National Congress for a series of major achievements.

Xi Jinping said that on the Ukrainian crisis, China has always decided its position and policy based on the merits of the matter itself, upholding an objective and fair position, and actively promoting peace talks.

It is hoped that all parties concerned will exercise rational restraint, conduct comprehensive dialogue, and resolve common concerns in the security field through political means.

However, the "Wall Street Journal" revealed last week that after the war between Russia and Ukraine, Xi Jinping apparently alienated Putin, but quietly deepened Sino-Russian relations. Recently, he has deepened his long-term bet on Russia.

In recent weeks, Xi Jinping has instructed to build stronger economic ties with Russia, strengthen Sino-Russian trade ties and provide Russia with a lifeline against Western pressure, the report said.
