Wang Yi: China-Russia relationship is as strong as it has ever been

China, the United States and Russia should work with one another and pursue win-win outcomes, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Wednesday, Shanghai Daily reports.

In the new era, the China-US-Russia relations should not be a "seesaw" game. The three countries should work with, rather than against, one another and pursue win-win, rather than zero-sum, outcomes, Wang told a press conference on the sidelines of the national legislative session.

While responding to the question on tripartite relations after US President Donald Trump took office, Wang said China-Russia relations will not be affected or weakened by any external factor, as their comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination is a strategic decision reached by both sides on the basis of their fundamental interests.

"We believe the three countries can develop healthy and positive relations so that jointly we can fulfill our responsibilities for world peace and development," he said.

"The China-Russia relationship is as strong as it has ever been, and our mutual trust has reached a historical high," said Wang.

He added presidents of China and Russia will have multiple meetings this year, which will take the relations to new heights.

"China and Russia will improve strategic coordination on international and regional issues and together act as a stabilizer in an otherwise turbulent world," he said.

Wang said China welcomes improvement in Russia-US relations, which is of great importance for the world.
