China, Russia pledge to boost bilateral ties

Kuala Lumpur, Aug 5 (IANS) China and Russia pledged to boost bilateral cooperation as Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Wednesday met his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov on the sidelines of the ongoing 48th ASEAN foreign ministers’ meeting.

Speaking of the 70th anniversary of the victory of the Global War against Fascism, Wang said both China and Russia have organised events to mark the occasion, reports Xinhua.

The events will also aim to express their firm determination to jointly safeguard the purposes and principles of the UN Charter and basic norms of international relations.

China was willing to strengthen the strategic coordination with Russia on Asia-Pacific affairs to promote a common, cooperative, comprehensive and sustainable Asian security concept, Wang said.

He hailed the successful holding of the seventh BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) summit and the 15th Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in Ufa in Russia earlier this year, saying they injected new impetus to the development of the two groupings.

President Vladimir Putin is looking forward to taking part in China’s victory day celebration on September 3, said the Russian foreign minister.
