Comprehensive strategic cooperation between China and Russia is successfully developing, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said on Wednesday. “China fully agrees with what [Russian Foreign Minister Sergey] Lavrov said about Russian-Chinese relations ate yesterday’s press conference,” Hua said.
“Comprehensive strategic partnership between China and Russia is getting a positive impetus for development at the high level,” the diplomat added. “Last year the two sides celebrated together the 70th anniversary of Victory in the Second World War, coordinated the initiative of linking the Silk Road Economic Belt with the Eurasian Economic Union, successfully held a year of youth exchanges and effectively coordinated their positions on international issues. Considerable progress was reached in the development of the two countries, as well as in ensuring global peace, security and stability,” she noted.
“China is ready to work together with Russia on comprehensive implementation of agreements on cooperation reached by the leaders of the two countries,” the spokesperson stressed adding that Moscow and Beijing “should make more progress in bilateral relations.”
On Tuesday Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told an annual press conference that the relations between Moscow and Beijing are now at the highest level over the whole history of ties between the two countries.
