I have been working in the region near the Russian border for many years and I have always felt a strong sense of support from the Russian side. And I hope to find some support today,” – said Xu Guango, addressing the Chairman Viktor Gorchakov.

I am happy that they have been assigned to the government level. Now its up to us to go together ahead with whats been planned.”
