Russia, China have no ambition for world domination: Peskov
Despite all US attempts, China still resists US demands to cut all ties with Russia.
Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said in an interview on Sunday that Russia and China have no desire of establishing world domination through their cooperation agreements.
"Russia and China are not seeking to rule the whole world when they implement their bilateral agreements. We know that other countries have such a tendency," he said in the interview with Rossiya 1 television channel.
Peskov added that the US has been a great source of destabilization and provocative actions in light of its recent geopolitical aggressions.
The Spokesperson also noted that US sanctions on Russia and threats of secondary sanctions on China have had a limited impact on the relations between Moscow and Beijing, adding that the prospects for further development are positive.
"There are of course many complications. Sanctions and the threat of secondary sanctions have had a negative impact. But their influence is rather limited because the general trend remains positive," Peskov said.
He mentioned that trade between the two countries flourished in recent months despite the US pressures on China to cut ties with Russian companies.
The White House has already previously expressed concerns over the recent meeting of Chinese leader Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The diplomatic rift between the US and the Sino-Russian bloc is further widening as the Russian-Ukraine war is further exposing the West's ambitions of establishing a unipolar world.
Since the war in Ukraine, the US and its allies have been adamant about pressuring the Global South to cut ties with Russia.
Due to China's resistance, the US has imposed a partial embargo on Chinese-made semiconductors.
It is also undergoing territorial instability since US Speaker Nancy Pelosi landed on the Taiwanese island, unbothered by China's threats.
Both Russia and China have also received subtle threats from NATO due to their cooperation in the Arctic.
On September 12, it was reported that China and Russia had agreed to cooperate in investment projects worth $160 billion intended to fortify bilateral ties.
It is worth noting that, as part of coordination between the two nations, China and Russia held their first joint exercises of this year in the Vostok-2022 military drills which began in early September.
A growing friendship between Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin has helped put the two countries closer together. The ambitions to end what China and Russia regard as America's economic and geopolitical hegemony further strengthened the diplomatic ties.
In August, it was reported that trade between China and Russia rose 29 percent, amounting to $97.91 billion in the first seven months of 2022.
