Policy: Putin was greeted by Chinese officials and an honor guard as he stepped off the plane on what is his first trip abroad since being re-elected president in March.

Later on Thursday, Putin was welcomed with a big ceremony in Beijing and received by Xi.

The two-day visit is at the invitation of Xi and is intended to bring Russia and China closer together. The two countries have increasingly strengthened economic and strategic cooperation after Russia launched the war of invasion in Ukraine.
