Sino-Russian relations not directed at third party
Chinese diplomat talks about the importance of Sino-Russian relations regarding the future of multilateralism, democracy, and justice.
On Tuesday, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin stated that the cooperation between China and Russia is neither influenced by the outside nor directed toward a third party, commenting on Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov's words on the development of economic ties between the two countries.
Lavrov had said on Monday that the economic cooperation between the two countries will soon gain momentum as the West continues to act as a dictator. He pointed out that relations between Moscow and Beijing are founded on doctrinal documents that "characterize [these] contacts as the strategic partnership and the multi-aspect interaction."

The Chinese diplomat noted that “Sino-Russian relations have withstood the new tests of the fickle international environment and have always maintained the right direction of progress." That complements Lavrov’s statement on the long border Russia has with the People’s Republic of China and how this furthers their cooperation and dedication toward global justice and multilateralism.
Moreover, Wenbin outlined China and Russia’s commitment to the promotion of a multipolar world that opposes hegemony and bloc confrontation in international politics giving opportunity for a real democratic world that will uphold true multilateralism.
