MOSCOW, June 23. /TASS/. The Russian and Chinese foreign ministers will sign a declaration on increasing the role of international law, Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.
"As you know, the Russian president will pay a visit to China and the presidential administration has announced about this," the diplomat said.
"During the forthcoming visit, the foreign ministers of both counties are planning to sign a declaration on increasing the role of international law," she noted.
According to the diplomat, this document for the first time sets forth a common approach by both countries to a number of contemporary international problems.
"The declaration is aimed at stressing the significance attached by Russia and China to the most important principles and norms of international law amid increasing instability in many regions of the world," Zakharova said.
"In our view, it is important that it sets forth the understanding shared by the two permanent members of the UN Security Council with regard to such topical components of international law as the principles of the sovereign equality of states, the non-use and the non-interference into internal affairs and the peaceful resolution of disputes," the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said.
On the invitation of China’s President Xi Jinping, Russian President Putin will pay an official visit to China on June 25.
