Russia pledges to continue developing cooperation with China

Moscow, April 27 (Prensa Latina) Russian government is presently intending to continue developing two-way cooperation with China, Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov said on Saturday.

China is an absolutely sovereign and powerful State capable of defending its own interests and, in addition, it is our close partner, Peskov stated while commenting on Washington’s pressure on Beijing due to its support for Moscow.

On Friday, the U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, during his visit paid to China, condemned China’s support for Russia, and added that, if Beijing does not take measures to “solve this problem”, Washington will.

On April 23, the Wall Street Journal reported that the United States is orchestrating new sanctions to be imposed on several Chinese banks in order to force Beijing to break off commercial relations with Moscow, since this exchange between the two countries supposedly boosted Russian military production to defeat Ukraine.
