By Victor Larin (Far Eastern Branch, Russian Academy of Sciences):
"In the extreme instability of the modern world, we all see what is happening in Europe, Africa, South Asia and even North America, stable and strategic relations between Russia and China have a special value. They are important not only for our two countries but also to the world.
"In the international arena China is a close friend and partner, at least up until now, especially in the face of, if not a common enemy, a shared aggravator, the US’ desire to dominate forever and everywhere. That is the basic approach of the US’ policies, which go against the interests of China and Russia."
