MOSCOW, Nov. 25 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao continued his official visit to Russia on Wednesday. The following are highlights of his activities there.

Wen met Russian President Dmitry Medvedev here Wednesday, exchanging views on major international and regional issues of common concern and agreeing to further strengthen bilateral ties.

The China-Russia strategic partnership of coordination has a solid foundation, featuring rich contents, extensive influence and huge potential, Wen said, adding it has become a strategic support for the two countries' respective development and served as an important guarantee for world peace and stability.

Developing ties with Russia is a priority of China's foreign policies, he said, adding China is ready to constantly increase mutual political trust and support, deepen pragmatic cooperation and people-to-people and cultural exchanges with Russia, and promote the long-term, sound and steady development of its strategic partnership of coordination with Russia.

The Chinese premier said China and Russia both have entered their own key development stages.

He said the two countries should expand mutual trade and investment, carry out comprehensive high-tech cooperation, deepen bilateral cooperation in gas and oil, nuclear energy, coal, power and other fields, promote regional cooperation and enhance all-around competitiveness of the two countries.

Speaking of the latest situation on the Korean Peninsula, Wen said China has all along devoted itself to maintaining the peninsula's peace and stability, and opposed military provocations in any forms.

Under the current serious and complex circumstances, Wen said, all concerned parties should exert maximum restraint, and the international community should make more efforts conducive to easing up the tensions.

Restarting the six-party talks is an essential way to secure stability and denuclearization on the peninsula, he said.

Before meeting Medvedev, Wen attended a China-Russia business summit in Moscow, during which he said China is committed to step up its cooperation with Russia in such fields as trade, mutual investment and energy.

He noted that China will be more dedicated to deepening bilateral cooperation and enriching the partnership to a higher level.
