CHINA MILITARY TELLS RUSSIA ‘WE’VE COME TO SUPPORT YOU’ AGAINST U.S.
China’s military leadership has pledged its support to Russia as tensions between Moscow and the West further deteriorate into diplomatic isolation, economic sanctions and dueling defense drills.
In his first visit to Russia, newly appointed Chinese Defense Minister Wei Feng attended the seventh Moscow International Security Conference accompanied by a delegation of other high-level military officials. Emphasizing that his trip was coordinated directly with Chinese President Xi Jinping, Wei said that he had two major messages for Russia at a time when both nations were attempting to modernize their armed forces and strengthen their hands in global affairs in spite of U.S. fears.

“The Chinese side came to let the Americans know about the close ties between the Russian and Chinese armed forces,”Wei said.
