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.

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.

In a major move this week, the Foreign Affairs Committee of the European Parliament voted to approve the first agreement of bilateral cooperation between the EU and Cuba, after several decades of contingent relations imposed by the EU. The agreement is set to be put to a final vote by Parliament in July.
“Now that Trump wants to isolate Cuba again, the EU must make the most of this opportunity to get closer to the island,” Elena Valenciano, the member who submitted the proposal said.
The United States will send a delegation to a summit for China’s global development plan in Beijing this weekend, China’s Foreign Ministry said on Friday.
