US and Western Defence strategy is based partly on the concept of Russian-Chinese rivalry.
What happens now that Russia and China are not just friends, but “strategic partners“?
Chinese President Hu Jintao’s visit to Russia will further boost the China-Russia strategic partnership of coordination, China’s Foreign Minister Li Zhaoxing said in Beijing Tuesday.
“At the invitation of Russian President Vladimir Putin, President Hu Jintao will visit Russia once again,” Li said at a press conference on the sidelines of the fifth session of the Tenth National People’s Congress.
“There are a lot of items on the agenda of the visit,” Li said.
Top leaders, governments, relevant departments and the peoples of the two countries are working “hand in hand” to deepen the traditional friendship, raise the level of China-Russia strategic partnership of coordination so as to boost the common development of the two countries and to make new contributions to world peace and development, Li said.
