“China-Russia cooperation has significant internal driving force and independent value, it is not directed against any third party and is not influenced from outside,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin pointed out
The cooperation between China and Russia is not directed against any third party and is not influenced from outside, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said at a briefing on Tuesday, commenting on Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s words on the development of economic ties between the two countries.
“We highly appreciate the corresponding statement by [Russian Foreign Minister Sergey] Lavrov,” the diplomat said. As he pointed out, “Sino-Russian relations have withstood the new tests of the fickle international environment and have always maintained the right direction of progress.”
“China-Russia cooperation has significant internal driving force and independent value, it is not directed against any third party and is not influenced from outside,” Wang Wenbin added.
He also pointed out that China and Russia will continue to be committed to promoting a multipolar world and democratizing international relations, upholding true multilateralism, and opposing hegemony and bloc confrontation in international relations.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Monday that economic cooperation between Russia and China will gain momentum in the near future as the West “holds a dictator’s position.” He pointed out that relations between Moscow and Beijing are based on doctrinal documents that “characterize [these] contacts as the strategic partnership and the multi-aspect interaction.” Lavrov also noted that the Russian Federation has “a long border with the People’s Republic of China and common interests in defending principles of justice and the multi-polar world order in international affairs.”.
