Putin-Hu summitry: "Cordial welcome," says Russian President

China's President Hu Jintao will receive the most cordial welcome in Russia, says President Vladimir Putin, who is hosting an informal bilateral summit.

Presidents Putin and Hu met on two occasions before-in Moscow 18 months ago, and in China, more recently.

They are now conferring in Novo-Ogarevo, presidential country residence near Moscow.

Russia was satisfied to see a steeled political activist overtaking the helm in China. "He is no mere experienced political leader but a man who has special feeling for Russia," President Putin said to the media. "That is why my wife and I are enjoying all the greater the chance to entertain our Chinese friends not merely in Russia or Moscow but at our own home," he added.

The Chinese visitors have a close schedule-work on an official visit to Russia plus activities on the Shanghai Partnership Organisation, to say nothing of upcoming routine contacts in St. Petersburg. Mr. Hu is unlikely to spare a moment to himself, remarked the host President.

This is his first visit abroad since his presidential inauguration, Hu Jintao said, in his turn. Appointment of Russia for this maiden visit testifies to the importance Beijing attaches to its contacts with Moscow, he stressed. President Hu is sure this will be an extremely fruitful trip.

The Trump administration is looking for a replacement for the American military contingent in the north of Syria. If the United States agrees with Saudi Arabia, the situation in the south of the country will become a lot more intense as Iran and Israel stand on the brink of war

Iran strongly determined to fight for Golan Heights

These armchair generals who come on talk shows or give their opinions as to the capabilities of various military weapons systems are doing no more than inflating their own self image and generating circulation for the news agencies

Will Americans sacrifice one of their warships to start a major war?
