Russian ruler President Vladimir Putin and China’s dictator, Xi Jinping have solidified their relations further in a recent phone call. The two rulers used the opportunity to assess the benefits of comprehensive cooperation between their countries.
According to a statement by the Kremlin, the conversation reiterated their commitment to working together at various forums, including the United Nations, BRICS, and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. They also shared their opinions on pressing international matters, particularly the Middle East conflict, the statement added.
China seeks “to uphold the spirit of mutual assistance and friendship from generation to generation, and work together to write a new chapter in China-Russia relations,” Xi told Putin, as quoted by national media.

Putin reiterated that Russia backs China’s efforts to reconcile with the self-governing island of Taiwan. Moscow strictly follows the One-China policy, which supports Beijing’s claim of sovereignty over the island, the Russian leader added. -RT
