Xi meets 'best and bosom friend' Putin amid raging US trade war

Destroying arms control treaties is "unacceptable," Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday during a bilateral meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Kremlin.

During the visit, which was aimed at cementing economic ties between the two countries amid China's heated trade war with the United States, Putin thanked Xi for helping their countries achieve a trade turnover of more than $100 billion a year. He added that Russian-Chinese relations have reached an "unprecedented level."

"In the joint agreement that we signed on strengthening global strategic stability in the modern era we empathized the principled stance of Russia and China on the unacceptability of jeopardizing the existing system of agreements on arms control, disarmament and nonproliferation," Putin said.

On many international and regional issues Russia's geopolitical views align with those of China, he added.

Xi is expected to spend three days in Russia at the invitation of Putin, which coincides with the annual St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, and will commemorate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between the two countries.


Trumpy must be seething with jealousy right now.
