Russian Foreign Minister: China and Russia Vow To Challenge Western Hegemony

On May 24, 2023, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin announced that Russia and China will stand united in resisting the collective West’s efforts to keep its global dominance, and will push back vigorously against such dangerous reckless plans. 

“We sincerely cherish the long-standing bonds of good-neighborliness, partnership and cooperation between the Russian Federation and the People’s Republic of China. This is of particular importance for us in the wake of increasing turbulence in the international arena. Our countries stand shoulder-to-shoulder fending off the collective West’s attempts to preserve global dominance and to take advantage of illegal sanctions in order to impose their will on independent countries,” Mishustin said during a meeting with Chinese leader Xi Jinping.

“I am convinced that Russia and China will offer a resolute response to those dangerous aspirations and will create favorable conditions for steady progress – toward our common strategic goals,” he continued.

Mishustin talked about his recent meeting with Chinese Prime Minister Li Qiang and commended the talks for being substantive. Per the Russian prime minister, they called attention to the progress made in trade and economic cooperation and pushed for opening up new promising sectors in order to take the Russian-Chinese relations to  new levels by 2030.

“Along with stronger trade and economic cooperation, we deem it important to expand cultural and humanitarian ties. They cement the foundation of friendship and mutual affection between our peoples, which we must hand down to future generations of Russian and Chinese citizens,” the Russian prime minister continued.

China and Russia relations are now air tight. You can thank the US’s boneheaded foreign policy for that. By pursuing economic subversion and regime change against both countries, US authorities have brought China and Russia together in ways previously unimagined.

A total course correction – a move towards realism and restraint — is needed for geopolitical stability to ensue.
