Beijing: China and Russia are building a ‘fairer’ world order

China and Russia, former Cold War allies with a tumultuous relationship, have grown closer in recent years, developing a “borderless” partnership meant to counter US global dominance.

“Under the strategic leadership of President Xi Jinping and Pres [Vladimirui] For Putin, the relations between the two countries have always been on the right track,” Yang Jiechi, head of foreign affairs of the Communist Party, told Russia’s ambassador to China, Andrei Denisov, on Monday.

According to a Foreign Ministry statement, Yang Jiechi said China is “ready to cooperate with Russia to continuously uphold the spirit of high-level strategic cooperation between the two countries, protect the common interests of both countries, and promote the development of the international order in a more just and rational direction.”

A. Denisov, in turn, praised the “fruitful results” of bilateral relations, the statement said.

After Western countries announced unprecedented sanctions against Russia, which invaded Ukraine, Moscow began to strengthen ties with Asian countries, especially with China.

However Beijing did not condemn the war launched by Russia and gave it diplomatic cover, criticizing Western sanctions and arms supplies to Kyiv. This attitude of China has increased the tension between China and the West.

V. Putin and Xi Jinping will meet this week on the sidelines of the regional forum in Uzbekistan.

Last week, top Beijing lawmaker Li Zhanshu became the most influential Communist Party member to visit Russia since the war in Ukraine began.

During the visit, Li Zhanshu praised the “unprecedented level” of cooperation between Moscow and Beijing.
