Adjust font size:

Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi (R) talks with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov during their meeting in Jekaterinburg of Russia, May 14, 2008.

Some of those Russian aid, including tents and blankets, is to be airdropped for the victims, local relief officials said.

"The China-Russia Strategic Partnership of Cooperation has grown rapidly in an all-round manner," diplomats quoted Yang as saying during his talks with Lavrov.

The top Chinese diplomat spoke highly of the bilateral relations, saying China is satisfied with it and appreciates Russia's stance on Taiwan and Tibet.

Yang thanked the international community, including Russia, for the support of the Beijing Olympic Games in August.

He pledged to take Russia a priority in Chinese foreign policy and push the strategic partnership forward.

Lavrov, on behalf of the government, expressed solace to China which is suffering from the devastating earthquake, vowing to further political mutual trust, strengthen supports on issues concerning each other's core interest, promote substantial cooperation and enhance cultural and people-to-people contact.

"We wished success to Russian and Chinese athletes at the upcoming Beijing Olympics, which we are certain will be well organized, as our Chinese friends usually do," Lavrov told a press conference.

Yang is here for a trio-meeting with his Russian and Indian counterparts, and a quartet-conference with Russian, Indian and Brazilian senior diplomats.
