According to the presidential office, the two leaders will discuss ways to “strengthen mutually beneficial, future-oriented substantive cooperation” in various sectors, including trade, investment, development, science and technology as well as the environment and climate change.
The two sides will also reaffirm support for each other’s regional peace initiatives.
