They will both meet at the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation Summit in Samarkhand, and it will be from the 15-16 of September. Mr. Putin will also meet with other leaders, including Pakistan, India, and Iraq. But the major concern of this meeting will be the Chinese leader and these things, said the Kremlin foreign policy spokesman, Yuri Ushakov.
Russia and China have sought to position the SCO, founded in 2001, with the ex-Soviet Central Asian nations. It is an alternative to Western multilateral groups. Mr. Xi’s visit after the numerous sets of lockdowns in China plays a vital role. The whole world is learning to live with the virus, but Beijing continues to shut down entire cities.
