China’s FM hails joint effort by Beijing and Moscow to fight ‘political virus’ and ensure global stability
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi has hailed Beijing-Moscow cooperation as playing a critical role in maintaining international stability, adding that the two nations were starting a new chapter in bilateral relations.
Speaking at a press conference on Friday, Yi noted that this year marks the 20th anniversary of the Treaty of Good-Neighborliness and Friendly Cooperation Between China and Russia, and that this agreement would be renewed and bolstered as the partnership between Moscow and Beijing strengthens.
“It is a milestone in China-Russia relations, and more importantly a new starting point for us,” he said of the treaty’s anniversary. He praised the response of both nations to the Covid-19 crisis, and added that the two have also worked together to fight a “political virus” sweeping across the globe.
“The more unstable the world is, the greater the need for carrying forward China-Russia cooperation,” Wang said. The allies will continue to support each other in safeguarding “core interests” and national sovereignty, while also opposing “color revolution.”
