MOSCOW, November 29. /ITAR-TASS/. China shared Russian concerns about US missile defense plans, Russia’s Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said on Friday.
“Our dialogue with China on missile defense is very important," he told a media briefing at Itar-Tass news agency. "Our colleagues from the People’s Republic of China have the same concerns on US global missile defense plans.”
Military-technical cooperation with China was developing progressively and was oriented “at the development of state-of-the art arms and hardware”, Antonov said, telling reporters that earlier in the year, the Chinese president visited the defense ministry, the first-ever by a Chinese leader.
“Following instructions from our countries’ leaders, co-operation between the defense ministries of Russia and China has received an additional boost,” the deputy minister said, noting that the joint naval exercise Sea Co-operation in July and the anti-terrorist exercise Peace Mission 2013 from July to August were culminating points in military co-operation this year.
Focusing on military and military-technical co-operation between Russia and India, Antonov said transfer of the aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya to the Indian navy was “the milestone event of the year”.
“When the Indian defense minister visited Moscow, agreements were reached to continue regular joint exercises and to continue negotiations between the headquarters on adding global and regional security to their agendas,” he said.
