China, Russia hold talks on strategic stability in Beijing

By China Watcher

In a sign of the development of strong mutual relations between the two great powers, a consultation between China and Russia on strategic stability was held in Beijing on 18 April 2008.

The two nations exchanged views on the current international security situation, non-proliferation, hot regional issues and multilateral arms control.

According to China Daily, the two nations agreed that it is of vital importance for world peace and security to safeguard global strategic stability, boost mutual trust among nations and resolve international disputes by peaceful means. In a joint statement, it also call for support for the arms control process under the multilateral framework and settlement of issues concerning the non-proliferation process as matters of great significance.

I believe the common stance of the two nations is to promote a multi-polar world which is not dominated by a single powerful nation and also, to ensure that their nations will continue to develop according to its own pace free from interference from the US and its allies.
