TIANJIN, Sept. 21 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice Premier Wang Qishan said Tuesday that the Sino-Russian energy cooperation enjoyed broad prospects.

Wang made the remarks while co-chairing the sixth round of the Sino-Russian energy negotiators' meetings with Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin in Tianjin.

China was willing to work with Russia to expand energy cooperation in areas such as oil, natural gas, nuclear power, electric power and coal in the spirit of active cooperation and mutual benefit, Wang said.

"All-around and deep energy cooperation between the two countries will be of strategic significance," he said.

Leaders of the two countries attached great importance to bilateral energy cooperation, and the two sides had made great achievements within the framework of the meeting mechanism, he said.

The latest round of the meetings could pave the way for Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's upcoming visit to China.

In August, Russia officially launched its section of a pipeline that will deliver east Siberian oil to China, and the pipeline is expected to be put into operation by the end of 2010.
