Russian President Vladimir Putin has proposed a free trade area between China and the Russia-led Eurasian Economic Union to beef up cooperation between the two sides.

Prior to his state visit to China this coming Saturday, Putin has told Chinese media that all members of Union agree to step up cooperation with China within a Silk Road cooperation framework proposed by Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Putin has described the Silk Road Economic Belt as a quote-"very well-timed and appealing" initiative that has "great potential."

He says all five members of the Eurasian Economic Union, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia, have expressed support for carrying out cooperation with China within the Belt framework.

On Russia-China ties, Putin calls the two countries "close allies", saying that mutual trust between Moscow and Beijing has reached an unprecedented level and laid a solid foundation for bilateral cooperation.

The Russian president will travel to Beijing on Saturday for a state visit after attending the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit in Uzbekistan.
