Interview by the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey V. Lavrov to the China Daily Newspaper, 15/04/2014

Close cooperation in the international arena is the most important aspect of Chinese-Russian strategic partnership. Our countries advocate a more just and democratic polycentric world order based on fundamental principles of international law and the central coordinating role of the UN. It is pivotal that in today’s complex and unpredictable global context we understand and respect each other’s interests and concerns.

During my visit to China, my colleague Wang Yi and I intend to engage in an in-depth exchange of views on a broad range of current global and regional issues, including the situation in Syria, the Iranian nuclear program, situation on the Korean Peninsula, as well as that in Afghanistan in the light of the presidential elections that took place in the country on April 5. Our two countries have coinciding or similar approaches to the majority of international problems and are ready to further harmonize their positions.
