Russia, China ready to 'jointly resist emerging challenges'​

Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, Chinese counterpart Li Keqiang hold meeting via video link​

Russia is ready to jointly resist emerging challenges and increasing external pressure together with China, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said during a meeting via video link with Chinese counterpart Li Keqiang on Monday.

“Our countries have the same approach to many problems of our time. Together we advocate the formation of a multipolar architecture of international relations. And we are ready to jointly resist emerging challenges and increasing external pressure,” Mishustin said, according to a statement by Moscow.

Recalling a statement by President Vladimir Putin who indicated that Russia needs a prosperous China, Mishustin said China also needs a successful Russia in return and that positive developments have taken place economically, particularly in bilateral trade.

“Despite the unfavorable external environment, Russian-Chinese trade shows double-digit growth rates. In the 10 months of this year, it has increased by almost a third and approached $150 billion. This is already higher than the figures for the whole of last year. In the future, as the leaders of the two countries agreed, we will reach $200 billion or more,” Mishustin said.

Beijing has not directly supported Moscow's "special military operation" in Ukraine, but has condemned "unilateral" sanctions imposed by the West in response.

Putin and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping met in Beijing earlier this year, and declared a "no-limits" partnership.

Mishustin said relations between Russia and China are of “the nature of a comprehensive and strategic partnership,” adding that both countries are “confidently and steadily moving forward in all directions, even in the conditions of crisis phenomena in the world economy.”

He underlined the importance of the use of national currencies for mutual trade, adding that the partnership has acquired a “strategic character.”

“The global world order is undergoing a serious transformation. Some Western states have decided that using illegitimate economic sanctions, restrictions and political pressure, they can impose their own rules, regardless of the interests of others. Such attempts are doomed to failure,” he said.

“We are convinced that in the new geopolitical realities, Russian-Chinese comprehensive and strategic partnership will reveal its great creative potential even more."

You can be freed from the West if you are independent.

Independent means independent from Western culture, technology, money, etc, while at the same time having the same standard of living or even higher, having equal or more sophisticated culture, advanced technology, etc. As well as equal or more civilization progress.

Cuba and North Korea are independent of the West, but it doesn't look good, they are poor and backward.


If the joining of Russia-China can make Cuba, North Korea, Iran, etc become wealthy countries, that have high culture and high technology, then I can say it is successful.

If not, it's just talking and daydreaming.

N.Korea is locked by their "Holy Sun" political system. No country can develop without opening up policy. N.Korea will never adopt opening up policy because people will find out the Sun is not holy at all once they see outside world. Cuba is too far away from China
