Russian Prime Minister said on Wednesday that Moscow and Beijing use national currencies in 70% of mutual payments.

Iran PressAsia: Speaking at a meeting with his Chinese counterpart Li Qiang in Beijing, Mishustin said the ruble and yuan are now dominant in Russia-China trade.

Mishustin added that last year, the trade turnover between Russia and China increased by one-third to $190 billion and in January-March this year, it was $52 billion, which gives grounds to expect that a goal of $200 billion trade turnover will be achieved this year, he said.

The prime minister praised the Russia-China business forum in Shanghai, which took place on Tuesday, saying it gathered hundreds of leading entrepreneurs that contribute to the development of the bilateral cooperation. 219
