Chinese Foreign Ministry welcomes Putin’s statements on bilateral relations – Russian Politics & Diplomacy

BEIJING, December 2. / TASS /. China highly appreciates recent statements by President Vladimir Putin on relations between the two countries, said Wang Wenbin, spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry on Thursday.

“We highly appreciate President Putin’s positive statements,” he said at a press conference. “We firmly believe that Russian-Chinese relations in the new era will be even more mature, stable and strong.”

Wang Wenbin said the fruitful contacts between the leaders of the two countries helped forge friendly ties of comprehensive strategic partnership between the two countries. Beijing and Moscow are contributing to global development by promoting joint projects on the international stage, the spokesperson said.

“Our countries are still in the right position during crucial historical times,” he said.

On Tuesday, Putin said in a speech at a VTB Capital investment conference that Western sanctions against Beijing were unwarranted and contrary to international law. He said Western efforts in the fight against China sometimes seemed unpleasant, citing the creation of AUKUS, the security pact between Australia, the UK and the US as an example.

Putin also said that Russia was not concerned about China’s growing military potential, as relations between the countries were at a high level. Russia, he said, will not be guided by the interests of any third country when building its relations with China.
