Citing US Threats, Russia and China Agree to Expand Military Cooperation

Russia and China signed on Tuesday a roadmap for deeper military cooperation as the two countries continue to boost ties in the face of increasing pressure from the US and other Western countries.

The deal was agreed to in virtual talks between Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and his Chinese counterpart, Wei Fenghe. The Russian Defense Ministry said the military leaders “expressed a shared interest in stepping up strategic military exercises and joint patrols” between the two countries.

“China and Russia have been strategic partners for many years,” Shoigu said. “Today, in conditions of increasing geopolitical turbulence and growing conflict potential in various parts of the world, the development of our interaction is especially relevant.”

Shoigu pointed to an increase in US bomber activity near Russia and in East Asia as a reason to increase cooperation with China. Wei told Shoigu that Russia has successfully countered pressure and threats from Washington.
