Russian president Vladimir Putin will greet Xi at a Kremlin dinner on Monday. Moscow and Beijing will sign dozens of agreements to deepen their cooperation during Xi's two-day trip.

Putin's foreign affairs adviser, Yuri Ushakov, described the current Russia-China relations as "the best in history." Before heading to Moscow, Xi warned President Donald Trump in a call on Monday that "some negative factors" are hurting US-China relations, as tensions soared over the sailing of a US destroyer within the territorial seas limit of a Chinese-claimed island in the South China Sea.

Trump, Putin and Xi will attend the Group of 20 summit in Germany later this week.
