Military cooperation between Russia and China is aimed at increasing the joint potential in countering new challenges and threats, Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said on Monday after talks of Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu with Vice Chairman of the Central Military Commission of China Fan Changlong.

“Our Chinese colleagues pointed out common views over challenges and threats our countries share. They noted the need to restructure the current world order, depart from double standards and strengthen equal and mutually beneficial relations in the world,” – Antonov said.

According to him, the talks marked the “practical benefit” of the Russian-Chinese “Sea cooperation” exercise held in 2014 in the waters of the East China Sea, as well as that of the anti-terrorist exercise of the SCO armed forces “Peace Mission-2014”.
