FMS of the Russian Federation proposes to open migration centers in China

China opposes Western sanctions against Russia and is ready to deepen bilateral economic cooperation, Chinese ambassador to Moscow Lee Hui said after meeting with the head of the FMS Konstantin Romodanovsky today in Moscow. According to him, China believes that sanctions will not help resolve issues.

"We must cooperate even more closely in trade, economics and in the humanitarian sectors," Li Hui said, according to Interfax.

"With regard to our trade and economic ties, such our cooperation has long been of close mutually beneficial character. In recent years, there has been a tendency to deepen our practical cooperation in the field of trade and economy," Li Hui said.

The ambassador expressed hope that the parties will continue this process in the future. "This is in the interests of Russia and in the interests of China. Such cooperation has been very close in the regions in recent years," he said.

At the meeting of K. Romodanovsky and Lee Hui, cooperation between Russia and China in the migration sphere was discussed, in particular, the prospects for opening Russian migration centers in China.

The head of the FMS said at the meeting that a Russian migration center could be opened in China. According to him, such a center will train Chinese citizens who are going to work in Russia.

In the center, reported K. Romodanovsky, testing of Chinese who go to the Russian Federation, on knowledge of the Russian language, can be conducted. Such testing is mandatory for foreigners who go to work in Russia.

"We are not talking about tourists, but about those who want to enter the Russian Federation, work and earn money. It turns out an inseparable process: your specialists prepare, our specialists go and test," said the head of the FMS.

"This is a very important proposal. The opening of such a center is a sign of support for Chinese companies and Chinese entrepreneurs. This is a useful thing," the Chinese ambassador commented on the initiative of the head of the FMS. He said that the initiative of the FMS of Russia needs to be worked out.

According to the FMS, in 2013, more than 678 thousand Chinese entered the Russian Federation, 1240 received a temporary residence permit, almost 82 thousand - a work permit.
