China, Russia to strengthen military ties


08:55, November 22, 2012

BEIJING, Nov. 21 (Xinhua) -- China has pledged to strengthen military ties with Russia during a visit by its defense minister Sergei Shoigu to Beijing.

Vice Chairman of China's Central Military Commission Xu Qiliang and Defense Minister Liang Guanglie met with Shoigu respectively on Wednesday.

Xu said that the China-Russia comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination has maintained a positive, healthy and stable momentum, during a meeting with Shoigu.

He said the agreement reached during a meeting between President Vladimir Putin and President Hu Jintao in June outlined the development direction for bilateral relations.

Noting that the two countries' military relations have developed, he said China regarded the development of military relations with Russia as a priority.

"China is willing to work with Russia to positively implement the two leaders' important agreement and further promote pragmatic communication and cooperation so as to upgrade their military relations to a higher level," Xu said.

Shoigu said the two countries' relationship has reached an unprecedented level and the two sides have broad common interests and deep mutual trust.
