Chinese Foreign Ministry: relations between Beijing and Moscow survived the "baptism of the epidemic" in 2020

According to TASS, on Saturday, in an interview with the Xinhua News Agency and Chinese Central Television, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that relations between China and Russia survived the baptism of a new coronavirus pandemic in 2020 and withstood the test of change.

“Over the past year, relations between China and Russia have gone through the baptism of the epidemic and the test of change. In all aspects, they have reached the highest level in history”, – said the head of the Foreign Ministry.

He also noted that over the past year, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin, despite the lack of personal contacts, continued intensive communication through telephone conversations and the exchange of telegrams.

“This has played a critical strategic role in the sustainable development of relations between the two countries”, – Wang Yi stressed.

According to him, the interaction of Beijing and Moscow in the fight against the pandemic continues.

“Russia was the first country to organize the supply of anti-epidemic materials to the PRC. China is also one of the largest states providing support to Russia in the fight against the epidemic, the minister said. 2021 is of particular importance for Sino-Russian relations. Both countries will enter a new stage of development. There is no end to the Sino-Russian strategic cooperation, there are no exclusion zones, there is no limit”.
