Strategic engagement with the PRC is a priority for Russian foreign policy, said Naryshkin

Strategic cooperation with China is a priority for Russia's foreign policy, the states support each other in matters of sovereignty, territorial integrity and security. This was said by State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin at a meeting with Premier of the State Council of China Li Keqiang, according to the website of the State Duma.

"The close coordination of the positions of Russia and China in international affairs is currently a constraining factor in relation to the policies of a number of Western states, primarily the United States of America, whose geopolitics in different parts of the world destabilize and lead to large human casualties," Sergei stressed Naryshkin.

He also expressed appreciation to the leadership and the people of China for understanding the position of the Russian Federation in connection with the Ukrainian crisis and thanked the Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China for a balanced approach and an objective attitude to the sanctions imposed on Russia by a number of countries.

“China and Russia always treat each other with respect, we have always built our relations from the position of equal dialogue,” said Li Keqiang. During the meeting, the sides expressed satisfaction with the high level and intensity of bilateral contacts in all key areas.
