During Visit of PRC Chairman Jiang Zemin to Russia Questions of Cooperation in Area of Transport Aviation Will be Discussed.

On 15 July an official visit to Russia of the PRC Chairman Jiang Zemin will begin. It is expected that during the visit possible purchases by the Chinese civil airlines of Tu-204, Tu-214, and Il-96 passenger airplanes of Russian manufacture and cooperation in the area of transport aviation will be discussed.
China is intending to buy nearly 1,000 cargo and passenger aircraft through 2020.

From: http://www.toad.net/cgi-bin/cgiwrap/royfc/today/acft_news.html

According to other sources China is intending to purchase 30 Tu-204/214s which will be used by China's domestic airlines.

Does anyone know anything else about this?

Such deal can really save the CIS aircraft industry!

If it goes like most other deals with the Chinese, they buy one or two which are then reverse engineered and manufactured at home...
- Tu-16
- MiG-15/17/19/21
- Caravelle

China is playing Airbus, BAe and Russians in the way airlines play A. and B.

Good for Tupolev plant, but I doubt it will be classic import case. Chineese never import, they get foreign companies organize manufacturings in their China. Technology transfer, for sure.

I read in Flight recently that the Russian deal is payback for the EP-3 spyplane incident. Even a R/R powered Airbus would still have some US equipment.
Not wanting to nitpick, but the Caravelle was never operated by a Chinese carrier, much less licence built. In the early 70's there was a plan to licence build VC-10's, but the aircraft was out of production so CAAC went for importing IL-62's.
Then in the late 1980's/early 90's there was the abortive programme to make MD80's.
