President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Dear friend and colleague, let me give you my warmest greetings.
You said quite rightly just before that the situation is changing very rapidly. It is therefore a very good thing that we have this chance to meet, talk, and exchange views. I am very pleased to see you.
President of China Xi Jinping (retranslated): It is a great pleasure to see my dear friend. Only two weeks have gone by, and here we meet again.
Yes, rapid change is taking place in the world. I agree completely that we do indeed need to meet on regular basis and discuss and update each other on the issues of concern.
