BEIJING, February 27 (Itar-Tass) — In the run-up to Russia’s presidential elections, Prime Minister and presidential candidate Vladimir Putin praised the development of relations between Russia and China in his article, “Russia and the Changing World”, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said on Monday.
Commenting on Putin’s article, Hong Lei said, “Beijing noted that in his article, ‘Russia and the Changing World’, Putin gave positive assessments to the development of relations between Russia and China. We hope that the presidential elections in Russia will be held successfully.”
The spokesman stressed that Russian-Chinese multilateral strategic partnership “will be stable and dynamic.”
Speaking about relations with China, Putin said, “The growth of the Chinese economy is not a threat, but a challenge of a colossal potential of business cooperation, a chance to fill ‘sails’ of our economy with the ‘Chinese wind’.” “We should establish more of the new cooperation ties, combining technological and industrial opportunities of our countries using – smartly, of course, - the Chinese potential for raising the business of Siberia and the Far East,” Putin writes.
