Tang Jiaxuan, a member of China’s State Council, said Russia and China have similar positions on regional and global issues. Tang said Moscow is Beijing’s key ally in its effort to maintain a strategic partnership.
Sources say, Russia and China have formally joined hands to stop expanding American and European military as well as economic global influences.
The strategic partnership can be very significant in providing a combined counter effect to the only Super Power of the world â€“ America.
The partnership between China and Russia actually started last year just after the start of the Iraq war. The two countries came close to each other in terms of supporting each other. Russia now provides significant amount of Chinaâ€™s energy needs. China now provides financial guarantee and loan to Russia without announcing the same explicitly.
Russian and Chinese military are having secret joint sessions to create the strategy of self defense in case of any invasion from other countries.
In the front of fight against terrorism, Russia and China has also formed an alliance. China and Russia both are concerned about Islamic militants in Chechnya as well Chinese Muslim areas in South West China.
China’s creation of a mechanism to consult with Russia on security issues marks the first time China has ever entered into such a venture, a senior Chinese official visiting the Kremlin said.
China secretly loaned Russia US Dollar 6.0 Billion to nationalize the Yukos oil company.Â
International think tanks suggest that soon Russia-China strategic partnership will form a NATO type military and G7 type economic alliance. India and Brazil will be invited to join the alliance.
