“We regularly conduct joint operational and combat training activities on land, sea and in the air, and successfully practice combat training missions of varying complexity,” – said the head of the Russian defense department.

Shoigu emphasized that cooperation between Russia and China is not directed against third countries.

“We, unlike some Western countries, do not create military blocs,” – said the head of the Russian Ministry of Defense.

The Russian minister also expressed hope for “close and fruitful cooperation” between Russia and China in the defense sector.

“I am convinced that today’s negotiations will serve to further strengthen the Russian-Chinese strategic partnership in the defense sector,” — concluded Shoigu.

The Chinese Defense Minister, in turn, said that the West, no matter how hard it tries, will not be able to interfere with normal Russian-Chinese cooperation.

Earlier, Chinese Deputy Foreign Minister Ma Zhaoxu, at a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Moscow, also said that China is ready to promote even greater development of relations with Russia.
