Lavrov: Russian-Chinese cooperation will be strengthened


Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Saturday that “the cooperation of Moscow and Beijing will be strengthened in the current circumstances.


Especially against the backdrop of the West’s efforts to undermine the foundations of the world order.”

He added, “This cooperation will be strengthened, and in the circumstances of the West blatantly undermining all the foundations on which the world order depends.

As two major countries, we have to think about how to continue our lives in this world.” This is according to Russia Today.

We have a lot of work to do.

Our leaders and other members of our governments and foreign ministries are actively working within the framework of the traditional periodic dialogue.”

Lavrov considered that the West at the present stage presents itself the goal of “eliminating Russia and moving to confront China.”


He stressed that “the West sees China as a danger because of its economic growth.”

Lavrov addressed the West, saying: “It (China) is in your court now and they are beating you according to your rules…Does this mean to you that it is time to change the rules of the game? It seems that it is.”

And he believed that the behavior of the West in the Ukrainian file and its sanctions against Russia and other issues confirms “the lack of credibility.

Either as a region where major reserve currencies originate or as economic partners, or as countries where gold reserves can be stored.”

On February 24, Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine, which was followed by angry international reactions and the imposition of “tough” economic and financial sanctions on Moscow.


Russia requires Ukraine to abandon any plans to join military entities, including the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, “NATO”, and to adhere to complete neutrality, which Kyiv considers an “interference in its sovereignty” to end the operation.
