BEIJING, February 27. /TASS/. Russian-Chinese relations have excellent prospects, so any attempts to drive a wedge between Moscow and Beijing are doomed to fail, Russia’s ambassador to China, Igor Morgulov, said in an interview the Chinese newspaper Huanqiu Shibao published on Monday.
"I am sure that the prospects for Russian-Chinese relations are brilliant. We have a straight and wide road ahead of us. I believe that anyone who has bad intentions and may try to break our friendship will not succeed," Morgulov said.
He sees new horizons opening up for the two countries.
"Obviously, the goal of increasing bilateral trade to $200 billion, set by the heads of the two states, can be achieved as early as this year, provided the current trend continues," Morgulov said.
He stressed that in connection with the optimization of the policy to combat coronavirus in China Russia hoped to fully resume people-to-people contacts as soon as possible and to start "a new wave of personal and cultural exchanges."
