Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin announced after the video talks that the Sino-Russian agreement would be extended.
As reported by the Chinese Media Group (CMG) today, the expansion of the Good Neighbor Agreement not only testifies to the strong vitality of the comprehensive strategic partnership between China and Russia in the new era, but also brings positive energy in maintaining global security and stability.
The enlargement, as stated, will lay a stronger foundation for the long-term development of relations between the two countries and the friendship of the two peoples from generation to generation.
The meeting of the two leaders and the joint statement of both sides clearly expressed opposition to hegemony and unilateralism and expressed strong support for mutual key interests. “What China and Russia are defending together is a just and rational international order and common interests of most countries in the world,” CMG said.
In a joint statement signed on June 28, China and Russia agreed to pursue a number of co-operation tasks, including bilateral trade, energy, scientific and technological innovation.
