MOSCOW, May 16 (RIA Novosti) – A large package of documents may be signed during Russian President Vladimir Putin visit to China May 20-21, Presidential Aide Yuri Ushakov said Friday.

Ushakov said the package lists 43 various documents, and 30 of them are expected to be signed.

“The package which is currently in our hands probably sets a record… Possibly around 30 [documents] may be signed,” Ushakov said.

The package includes bilateral, intergovernmental, inter-departmental and corporate agreements.

Some of them are expected to be signed right after Putin’s meeting with Chinese leader Xi Jinping, while others will be inked at the two leaders’ meeting with Russian and Chinese entrepreneurs.

Putin’s official visit to China coincides with a session of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA). The Russian president is expected to meet with Mongolian President Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj, Iraqi Prime Minister Iraqi Prime Minister and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

CICA has 24 full-fledged member states, while nine countries and four international organizations have an observer status. The organization’s summits are held every four years.
