Speaking at a regular press conference on Wednesday, MOFA spokesperson Geng Shuang said the two countries have marked 2020 and 2021 as the "years for scientific and technological innovation" and are drafting details of what to do in the coming two years.

"China and Russia can help each other a lot in the sci-tech field. China is a world leader in IT, satellite navigation, drone and supercomputer, while Russia has unique advantage in basic research and original innovation," Geng said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin also confirmed the plan by signing an order on Monday.
