Sergei Shoigu thanked PRC for "excellent organization" of SCO exercises

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu thanked his Chinese counterpart Chang Wantsuan for the "excellent organization" of the Peace Mission 2014 anti-terrorist exercise of the armed forces of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, which took place in China in August. This was reported by the press service and information department of the RF Ministry of Defense.

Sergei Shoigu stated that the holding by the Russian Federation and China of joint naval and antiterrorist exercises has acquired a regular character. "Russian and Chinese military personnel showed a high level of cooperation during the operation on escorting ships with Syrian chemical weapons," the Russian Defense Minister recalled and added that serious work was done by Russian and Chinese seamen during the "Sea Interaction - 2014" exercise in the East- The Chinese Sea.

The Russian Defense Minister also underscored the high level of military-technical cooperation between Russia and China, stressing that the issues of this cooperation "are constantly in the field of vision of the heads of our states." "In the conditions of an unstable international situation, the strengthening of reliable good-neighborly relations between our countries takes on special significance," said Sergei Shoigu. "This is not only a significant factor of state security, but also a contribution to ensuring peace and stability throughout the Eurasian continent and beyond," he stressed.

Today in Beijing, within the framework of the official visit to the People's Republic of China (PRC), Russian Defense Minister General of the Army Sergei Shoigu held talks with the Chinese Defense Minister Colonel-General Chiang Wantsuan.
