Universities in China and Russia have signed an agreement to set up a joint school for translation and interpretation with the aim of cultivating language talent.

Heilongjiang University and Lomonosov Moscow State University will offer a joint master's degree at the new school, according to Zu Xueqing, deputy head of the Sino-Russian School at Heilongjiang University in Harbin, northeast China's Heilongjiang Province.

Students will complete their first year in Harbin and those who pass a test will study in Russia for their second year.

Students who complete the two-year program will receive diplomas from both universities, according to Zu.

The new school aims to train bilingual Chinese and Russian translators and interpreters. "We look forward to the cooperation and how it can serve exchanges between China and Russia," said Liu Dequan, Party chief at Heilongjiang University.
