Gen. He said Chinese president Xi Jinping and Russian president Vladimir Putin are paying much attention to bilateral military cooperation, thereby laying a solid political foundation for the healthy and steady development of the military ties between the two countries.

Gen. He also noted the PLA and SVRF have worked together to implement the important consensus reached between Xi and Putin and are pushing for the pragmatic cooperation and exchange between the two militaries with new achievements.

Both armed forces have also seen deepening ties and higher level cooperation.

Gen. Fomin attributed the healthy and steady development of bilateral military ties to the close relationship between Putin and Xi; the independent foreign policies pursued by Russia and China and their shared views on the multi-polar world bereft of U.S. hegemony and dominated by Russia and China.

He said the SVRF and the PLA have been conducting high-level cooperation and have been in close cooperation in the fields of joint military exercise and military competition and military technology.

Russia and China should continue to boost strategic coordination and further strengthen ties between the two countries and two militaries, according to Gen. Fomin.
