Chinese President Xi Jinping told President Vladimir Putin on Monday that he believes the Russian people will support the Kremlin chief in a presidential election in 2024.
“I know that next year there will be presidential elections in your country again,” Xi Putin said at the start of talks in the Kremlin.
“Thanks to your strong leadership, Russia has made significant strides in bringing the country to prosperity in recent years. I am sure that the Russian people will give you strong support in your good endeavors.”
Xi, whose words were translated into Russian, called Putin his “dear friend,” and Putin used the same expression for his guest.
Putin, who came to power on the last day of 1999 with the resignation of Boris Yeltsin, has not yet said whether or not he will run in 2024.
