China and Russia, pariah nations facing international censure for brazenly violating the sovereignty of neighboring states, have taken the first public step to create a China-Russia alliance that will supplant the United States at the ongoing Group of 20 or G20 Summit in Hangzhou, China.

Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin pledged to deepen their strategic cooperation and staunchly support each other's national sovereignty and security, according to Chinese media. Both autocrats also promised more coordination in international and regional affairs.

Xi said he and Putin should strengthen pragmatic cooperation in infrastructure, energy, aviation, aerospace and advanced technology, according to Chinese media.

In August, Xi Jinping called on Russia to join China in forming a "New World Order" dominated by both countries. Xi expects to realize this New World Order in the next 10 years.

In a vitriolic speech delivered at the 95th anniversary of the founding of the Chinese Communist Party this July, Xi urged Putin to join China in a military alliance that will render NATO (the North Atlantic Treaty Organization) "powerless" and "put an end to the imperialist desires of the West."

"The world is on the verge of radical change," said Xi to his communist comrades. "We see how the European Union is gradually collapsing, as is the US economy -- it is all over for the new world order."

"So, it will never again be as it was before. In 10 years we will have a new world order in which the key will be the union of China and Russia," said Xi.

At the G20 summit in Hangzhou, China made Putin's standing as the first among equals clear when it announced the Russian despot is at the top of China's G20 guest list. This lavish fawning stands in contrast to the frosty reception Putin received at the 2015 G20 summit in Turkey where he was all but snubbed by Western leaders as Russia showed no signs of abandoning its plans to conquer eastern Ukraine.

In another sign Putin is China's man, the Russian was given the most prominent spot in the front row of photos of the assembled world leaders.

For his part, Putin said Russia "will be glad to take part in this discussion" to deepen military and economic ties with China. He also said Russia will push for more cooperation in trade, investment, energy and technology that will benefit both countries.

Xi asked Putin to join China in aligning their development strategies, including China's Belt and Road Initiative with the Eurasian Economic Union.
