Foreign Ministry of China: Moscow and Beijing agreed to counter unilateral terrorism
Moscow and Beijing are ready to contribute to the creation of a multipolar world order, and they will resist any form of unilateral intimidation.
This is stated in a statement by the Chinese Foreign Ministry following a meeting between Wang Yi, head of the foreign affairs commission of the CPC Central Committee, and Nikolai Patrushev, secretary of the Russian Security Council.
The parties discussed the current international strategic situation and expressed their readiness to jointly practice true multilateralism, resist all forms of unilateral intimidation and promote the democratization of international relations and the multipolarity of the world.
It is noted that Moscow and Beijing are in favor of maintaining stability in the Asia-Pacific region and against the Cold War mentality and ideological confrontation. The parties also discussed the conflict in Ukraine.
Today, February 22, Wang Yi will meet with Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. Earlier, Russian presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov admitted that Russian President Vladimir Putin could also hold talks with Wang Yi during his visit to Moscow. The Kremlin did not give an exact date.
The day before, on February 21, Wang Yi flew to Moscow, where he met with Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Nikolai Patrushev. During the talks, the Chinese representative compared the strength of relations between Russia and China to a rock, saying that they “will stand the test of the changing international situation.” Patrushev said that partnership with China is “an unconditional priority of Russia’s foreign policy.”
