On the June 12 summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korea leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore, Bloomberg reported Mr Putin said both Russian Federation and China agreed on the need for peace on the Korean Peninsula.

"President Putin is the leader of a great country who is influential around the world", Xi said.

Both he and Mr Xi also held talks in the Chinese capital, where they hailed the close ties between their countries and discussed the upcoming US-North Korea summit, as well as the Iran nuclear deal. Xi promised Russian Federation and China would increase their coordination in the worldwide arena.

Vladimir Putin believes that Russian Federation and China can reach a turnover of $100 bln by the end of 2018.

China is mired in tough negotiations with the U.S.to avoid a trade war, while Moscow, Syria, and Ukraine have deep differences with Washington, on multiple diplomatic fronts.

Both sides should explore new ideas and measures to promote all-round cooperation, and turn the two countries' advantage in high-level political relationship into more practical cooperation results, Xi said, calling for strengthening people-to-people and cultural cooperation to deepen the friendship between the two peoples.

He also reminisced to a Chinese broadcaster early this week about celebrating his birthday with Xi in 2013: "I won't hide it, we had a shot of vodka and sliced some sausage".

Xi "is approachable and sincere", Putin told CGTN. "But he is also a very dependable man to work with".

Putin told reporters on Friday that the two leaders had discussed the situation on the Korean peninsula.

President Xi Jinping on Friday awarded China's first friendship medal to his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin as the two leaders firmed up their alliance amid mounting USA diplomatic and economic pressure on them.

The Russia-China relations are at their best level in history and have set a good example for state-to-state relations in the present world, which has played an important role in safeguarding global peace, security and stability, Putin said.

"Trump's policies justified [the] growing closeness, especially for Russian Federation but also for China, given the volatile relationship with the U.S.", Ms. Repnikova told AFP.

"I see this as an acknowledgement and an evaluation of Russia's efforts to develop a comprehensive strategic partnership with China", he said.

India and Pakistan are also members.

Putin told CGTN that the SCO had "small" objectives when it was founded two decades ago but that it was now evolving into a larger global force.

He noted that Russian Federation appreciates China's efforts to promote cooperation among SCO members after taking over the SCO rotating presidency and supports China in hosting a successful summit in Qingdao.
