Kremlin rubbishes American suggestion that Moscow & Washington form anti-China alliance

President Vladimir Putin's spokesman has rejected an idea put forward by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that countries should team up against China. Moscow and Bejing have spent years building closer ties.

Speaking on Friday, Dmitry Peskov stated that Russia does not enter into alliances against other states, and all its political associations “are aimed at developing good neighborliness and mutual benefits,” adding that the two nations have “relations of a special partnership nature.”

On July 23, Pompeo called for a “new alliance of democracies” to oppose China, and said the US needs to work with Russia to achieve its goals on issues like arms control agreements.
