MOSCOW, July 4 (Xinhua) -- Chinese and Russian media outlets should step up cooperation and enhance exchanges for pushing ahead the development of relations between the two countries, said a visiting Chinese senior official on Tuesday.
Huang Kunming, executive vice director of the Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, made the remarks during a keynote speech at the Third China-Russia Media Forum held in Moscow.
China-Russia relations have entered the best period in history, which creates vast room for media cooperation between the two countries, he said.
Huang said the Chinese and Russian media outlets should properly handle the relationship between traditional and emerging media, development and governance, the national standpoint and a global perspective.
More than 120 representatives of 75 media outlets from both countries attended the forum with the theme of "new future of China-Russia cooperation and mission of media." The two sides signed 17 deals on media cooperation at the forum.
