BEIJING, May 25 (Xinhua) — The China-Russia comprehensive strategic
partnership of coordination for the new era has grown as solid as a rock
through thick and thin, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao
Lijian said on Tuesday.
Zhao made the remarks when asked to comment on Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov’s remarks on bilateral relations.
According to reports, in response to a question on whether Moscow and
Beijing would strike an alliance against the United States, Lavrov said
in an interview that Moscow and Beijing are satisfied with the existing
format of cooperation at this stage. He said bilateral relations with
China are better than ever, largely due to the fact that the existing
model of bilateral relations surpasses the level of interaction within
alliances formed in the Cold War era.
“We appreciate Foreign Minister Lavrov’s positive remarks,” Zhao said.
China-Russia relations have withstood the test of changing
international landscape and become the stabilizing force for the world
today because the two sides always adhere to the principle of
non-alliance, non-confrontation and non-targeting at any third party, he
He said the two countries always respect each other’s core interests
and accommodate respective reasonable concerns, always shoulder their
responsibility, uphold justice and firmly maintain the UN-centered
international system and international order based on international law.
“China stands ready to work with Russia and the international
community to continue to support and practice true multilateralism, make
international relations more democratic, deepen mutually beneficial
cooperation among countries, and inject new impetus and stabilizing
elements to world peace and development,” Zhao said. Enditem
