Putin accepts ‘friend’ Xi’s invitation for Winter Olympics

Putin accepts ‘friend’ Xi’s invitation for Winter Olympics

Russian President Vladimir Putin has accepted the invitation from his Chinese counterpart and good friend Xi Jinping to attend the Beijing’s Winter Olympics, as reported by Trinity Mirror, a partner of TV BRICS.

Putin’s visit to Beijing to take part in the Winter Olympics opening ceremony in February next year will make him the first state leader to meet face to face with Xi since the outbreak of COVID-19 in the central Chinese province of Wuhan in 2019.

China and Russia have a fine tradition of celebrating major events together. In 2014 Xi attended the Winter Olympics ceremony in Sochi in Russia, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told a media briefing here on Tuesday.

Now President Xi Jinping is inviting his good friend President Putin to attend the Beijing Winter Olympics. President Putin has accepted the invitation happily, Zhao said.

He said the two sides are in close communication on details of the visit.

We believe this will once again show the partnership between China and Russia that helps for the best for each other. We hope and we are convinced that the athletes from the two countries will set new records and we will make new contributions to deliver a splendid and safe Olympics, Zhao said.

Beijing is making grand preparations to host the Winter Olympic Games to be held in February next year.

The event makes Beijing the only city in the world to have hosted both the Summer and Winter Olympics. The city hosted the Summer Olympics in 2008.
