BEIJING, June 25. /TASS/. Russia and China closely cooperate in foreign policy and security based on a common approach to a broad range of international and regional problems, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a reception on occasion of the 15th anniversary since the two countries signed the treaty of friendship, good neighborliness and cooperation.
"The coordination of law enforcement bodies is strengthening, including in the issues of countering the major threat for today - terrorism," the Russian leader said.
Putin said the treaty confirmed by the letter of the law "the strategic and partner character of relations between Russia and China, the ties of a new type based on mutual respect, friendship and taking into account the interests of each other that meet the vital interests of our people, the tasks of long-term development of the two states and serve as an important factor of global and regional stability and security."
He reminded that later hundreds of bilateral documents were signed and favorable conditions were created for boosting cooperation between bodies, regions, public and business circles, and inter-parliamentary exchanges became systematic.
"While building the Russian-Chinese partnership we relied on traditions of centuries-old relations between our states. The unprecedented level of mutual respect and understanding we reached allowed us to solve complex and rather sensitive issues that we inherited from the past. Most important, it opened possibilities for moving forward for establishing multilateral ties in various spheres," Putin said.
