|Agreements boost China-Russia partnership
China and Russia signed a joint statement to strengthen their key partnership on Friday after President Xi Jinping arrived in Moscow to start his first visit abroad since taking office last week.
Despite the frigid weather, Xi received a warm welcome at the airport, which was blanketed in snow.
The Chinese leader stepped off the plane with his wife Peng Liyuan. The couple wore dark coats lightened by Peng's blue scarf.
