Turkey and China signed three agreements covering nuclear security, energy and agricultural health certification Saturday during Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s visit ahead of the G20 summit in the coastal Chinese city of Hangzhou.

Erdogan and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping held talks and presided over meetings between delegates from the two countries.

Turkish President expressed hopes that Turkish-Chinese relations would be strengthened.

China is Turkey’s third trade partner worldwide after Germany and Russia, and its first trade partner in the Far East, according to Ankara’s Foreign Ministry.

Erdogan arrived in Hangzhou on Saturday for the 2016 G20 summit, set to be held Sunday through Monday.

On the sidelines of the gathering, he is expected to hold meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin and United States President Barack Obama.
