    Beijing, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe arrived Sunday in Beijing capital for the APEC Forum that will start tomorrow.


    Russian President Vladimir Putin will take part in two major international summits, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum and the G20 meeting next week. He will also hold a series of separate bilateral meetings with foreign leaders, reported Prensa latina News Agency.

    President Putin arrived in Beijing on Sunday. He will hold talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping first in the narrow format. Members of the Russian and Chinese delegations will join the two leaders later. A package of bilateral documents is expected to be signed, President Putinâ€Ös aide Yuri Ushakov said.

    Later on Sunday, the Russian leader will meet Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chilean President Michelle Bachelet. Both have arrived in China for the APEC summit.

    Putin stressed APECâ€Ös vital international role. According to him, the forum plays a very important role in regulation of relations in the Asia-Pacific Region.   According to the president, APECâ€Ös progressive development in recent years clearly indicates that such a forum is needed. He recalled that all common "rules of the game" applied in the trade and economic spheres in the territory of the Asia-Pacific Region are agreed and coordinated within the APEC framework.

    "It is worth noting that all the decisions reached within the framework of the Forum are adopted on the basis of the principles of mutual respect, accommodation of the interests of each other, which reflects the spirit of APEC," President Putin said.

    There will be another major event on Putinâ€Ös schedule late next week. The president is going to attend a two-day G20 summit to be held in Brisbane, Australia, on November 15-16. Apart from working meetings, Putin is planning to hold separate meetings with British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Francois Hollande.
