Our correspondent managed to talk with Ms. Wang Qi, professor at Tsinghua University, director of the Institute for Strategic Cooperation between China and Russia.
– Ms. Wang Qi, do you think that today Russia can be called one of the main geopolitical partners for the BRICS SC countries?
– Yes, definitely. The SCO is the earliest regional framework for cooperation between China and Russia in the Eurasian region.
Comprehensive strategic interaction and partnership between China and Russia is a balance of peace and stability for regional and even global cooperation, as well as an accelerator of the integration process of Greater Eurasia. Cooperation between China and Russia is to reach a consensus on the concept of strategic alignment of the development of the Greater Eurasia region and the active adoption of relevant policies.
