BEIJING, September 2. /TASS/. The Russian-Chinese military cooperation is a basis for the strategic bilateral ties that helps to stabilize global situation, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said in Beijing on Wednesday.
"The consolidated position of our countries has a stabilizing impact on the international situation," Shoigu said during the talks with Fan Changlong, vice-chairman of China's Central Military Commission.
The Russian-Chinese drills are "the most significant aspect" of the military cooperation, Shoigu said.
"They contribute to improving battle training and authority of the armed forces of the two countries and show the readiness of defence agencies to respond to modern challenges and threats efficiently," he said.
Shoigu reminded that Russia and China held joint naval exercises in the Mediterranean Sea and the Sea of Japan in May and August this year. The crews held a training on counter-terrorism and anti-piracy actions and on carrying out peacekeeping operations, he said.
The sides "plan to develop relations between the armed forces of Russia and China and to cooperate by ensuring joint security in the zone of our responsibility," Shoigu said.
