MOSCOW, October 26 (Itar-Tass) - Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev called for not fearing China, which is actively developing.
In an interview with the Vesti V Subbotu news programme, Medvedev said it was necessary to develop high-tech cooperation with China.
Answering a question by the news programme’s author, Sergei Brilyov, if there is no threat from China, Medvedev replied: “Nothing to fear. These are our neighbours.”
“I believe that it is necessary to rivet attention to high-tech cooperation with China and deal with joint projects in this sphere,” the Russian premier said.
“When we talk about energy we can’t say these are just raw materials supplies. We don’t want to ‘take the needle’ again,” Medvedev said.
“I think that China is a very important and reliable partner, our strategic partner. China is a big market for job and the greatest economy,” he said.
