0 63

Russian leader Vladimir Putin said Wednesday that world conflicts ‘strengthen’ his country’s relations with China, after talks with Xi Jinping that celebrated their nations’ deepening political and economic ties.

Putin, on his first trip to a major global power since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, met his ‘old friend’ Xi in Beijing on the sidelines of a major forum in an event overshadowed by conflict in the Middle East.

At a press conference following the talks, Putin said that global turmoil served to bring China and Russia even closer together.

“All these outside factors are common threats and they strengthen Russian-Chinese cooperation,” he said.
