Peking: On November 25, the 21st session of the China-Russia Committee on Humanities Cooperation was held via video link. Chinese Vice Premier Sun Chunlan and Russian Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova attended the session. During the meeting, Hao Ping, president of Peking University, and Viktor Sadovnichiy, rector of Moscow State University, signed the joint training agreement of the China-Russia Mathematics Center.

The establishment of the China-Russia Mathematics Center, the foundation of joint laboratories and research centers as well as the organization of cultural festivals, film festivals, and historical archive exhibitions have all made significant contributions to promoting the friendly relationship and inter-civilization exchanges between China and Russia.

In June 2020, Peking University and Moscow State University initiated the establishment of the China-Russia Mathematics Center. They invited top universities, and research institutes from both countries to set up a China-Russia international mathematics research cluster. The Center undertakes important research to meet the needs of national development and plays a key role in talent training. The joint training agreement signed this time aims to further this partnership and promote a unified training program for doctoral students, master students, and senior undergraduate students. The agreement also hopes to bring together world-leading experts and scholars to cultivate top talents in mathematics with innovative and enterprising spirits, international vision, and world competitiveness.
