Wang, Lavrov vow to boost bilateral ties

CHINESE State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi yesterday met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on the sidelines of the ongoing 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly.

Lavrov wished the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China a full success, and believed China will make new and greater achievements in national construction. He said Russia is willing to make joint efforts with China to follow through on the important common understandings reached by the two heads of state during the Shanghai Cooperation Organization Samarkand summit, and continuously advance bilateral cooperation.

The Global Development Initiative and Global Security Initiative proposed by Chinese President Xi Jinping are of great importance and will achieve international synergy in promoting peace, development, equality and justice for the world. Russia highly appreciates the initiatives and supports them, he said.

Lavrov hoped Russia and China will strengthen coordination in international and regional bodies, including the UN, the SCO and BRICS.

Wang said the heads of state of the two countries held an important meeting and reached new common understandings in Samarkand, charting the course for the development of bilateral relations. China is willing to work with Russia to implement the important common understandings in a comprehensive manner.

At present, the pandemic situation remains severe and the international landscape is undergoing complex changes. As permanent members of the UN Security Council and responsible major countries, China and Russia should play their due roles, he added.

The two sides exchanged views on the Ukraine issue. Noting that China will continue to hold an objective and fair stance to promote peace talks, Wang said China hopes that the related parties will not give up on dialogue.
