China is now regarded as the world’s leading producer of caviar despite the delicacy being more popular in Russia.
Once everything was done, both Xi and Putin enjoyed the meal with a smooth shot of Russian vodka.
This isn’t the first time that two of the world’s many strong leaders showcased their cooking skill. In June, Putin and Xi learned how to make baozi dumplings during the former’s visit in China.
The two countries’ close friendship came into fruition a year after Xi became China’s president in 2012. His first trip abroad was in Russia where he met Putin to promote deeper cooperation, according to New York Times
The two powerful leaders praised their countries’ ever increasing close ties earlier in the day. Xi commended that their “friendship was getting stronger all the time.”
