China, Russia pledge to further military cooperation

High-ranking military officials from China and Russia held talks here Friday, pledging to further step up bilateral military cooperation between the two countries.

During an official visit to Moscow, Guo Boxiong, Vice Chairman of China's Central Military Commission, met with Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov on bilateral military relations.

Guo noted that this year marks the 10th anniversary of the signing of the China-Russia Treaty of Good-Neighborliness, Friendship and Cooperation, adding that the China-Russia comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership have maintained the momentum of a robust growth.

He stressed that Chinese President Hu Jintao's successful visit to Russia in June and the consensus reached by both countries' leaders during Hu's visit have determined the future direction of the development of bilateral ties and laid solid political foundations for the further promotion of military relations between the two countries.

Under the current complicated and changeable international situation, the strengthening of pragmatic military exchanges and cooperation between the two sides is of great significance, Guo said.

He added that China have been always seeing military relations with Russia a priority in its foreign military contacts and is willing to endeavor with the Russian side to actively implement the consensus reached by Chinese and Russian leaders, boost bilateral military cooperation in all fields, and push the relations between the two armies to a new high.

Serdyukov extended warm welcome to Guo and recalled his visit to China in last November. He said bilateral ties between Russia and China have achieved unprecedented development and there are still huge potentials in bilateral cooperation.

Serdyukov said Russia will work together with China to further promote bilateral military relations.
