Chinese-Russian relations and strategic cooperation is the best it has been in history, Chinese President Xi Jinping said during his official state visit to Russia this week.
Both leaders emphasized support for each other’s economic and political interests, agreeing to work on aligning strategies both economically and geopolitically, forging unity between the China-led Belt and Road initiative, and the Russian Eurasian Economic Union.
“Our two sides are working hard to align our development strategies. President Putin and I have reached an important agreement to strengthen the complementarity of the Belt and Road Initiative and the Eurasian Economic Union. Bilateral cooperation in energy, trade, investment, high-tech, finance, infrastructure and agriculture is growing rapidly and increasingly geared toward modernization and innovation in science and technology,” President Xi said.
“One needs good partners to walk with, and good neighbors to live with,” Xi noted in a speech when he arrived in Russia.
