China's Huawei signs deal to develop 5G in Russia

Chinese President Xi Jinping

China and Russian Federation note with alarm the extremely unsafe actions of certain states that, out of their own geopolitical and even commercial benefits, destroy or adapt the existing system of arms control and non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction to their needs, the statement said.

"These animals are a national symbol for China, and we greatly value this gesture of friendship", he said.

The two leaders decided on Wednesday to lift the bilateral relationship to a comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination for new era, and the two governments issued a joint statement on developing the lifted partnership.

The two sides have signed a package of trade deals and Mr Xi also brought two pandas for the Moscow zoo.

The leaders of China and Russian Federation have confirmed their cooperation on economic and security issues amid souring relations with the United States. When we talk about pandas, we always end up with a smile on our faces.

Also, the two countries have seen their strategic major projects in such fields as energy, aerospace and inter-connectivity making steady progress, including their first cross-border highway bridge, which is expected to complete in October.

Standing alongside Xi after the talks, Putin thanked China for entrusting the pandas to Moscow.

But critics said the move would do little to slow the influx of immigrants while doing a lot to harm USA businesses and consumers. Most economists, by contrast, say the deficit simply reflects the reality that the United States spends more than it saves.

The visit comes five years after Moscow's annexation of Crimea in 2014 led to a serious rift with its Western partners and subsequent turn toward its neighbour to the east.

He will later travel to the former imperial capital of Saint Petersburg for an economic forum hosted by Putin on Thursday and Friday.

China and Russian Federation have aligned their foreign policies and other positions at the United Nations on major issues such as Venezuela's economic and political crisis, the Syrian civil war and Iran's nuclear program, usually in direct opposition to the stance taken by Washington.

The share of trade with Russian Federation held by China has nearly doubled to 20 per cent since then at Europe's expense.

"The pivot really is happening", he said.

"Despite all the difficulties, China became a significant creditor and rather significant investor" in Russian Federation at a time when many other investors preferred to pack their bags.

In a written statement released after his arrival in Moscow for the three-day visit to Russia, Xi said China and Russia have created a role model of peaceful coexistence and win-win cooperation between neighboring countries as well as between major world powers. It followed that by issuing a pair of travel warnings for the USA, while the Foreign Ministry accused the US of acting in bad faith in trade negotiations and said any attempts to interfere or undermine China's stability would be "doomed to fail".
