China And Russia Seal Power Pact [View all]

CHINA and Russia vowed to step up joint military exercises yesterday, raising fears of a regional arms race after Washington declared the US Navy was bolstering its presence in the Asia-Pacific.

The deal between the nuclear powers capped summit talks in Beijing for the Shanghai Co-operation Organisation.

The grouping of China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan also weighed into the international tensions over the Syrian uprising and Iran's nuclear program.

The group said it opposed outside military intervention in the Middle East, a day after the Syrian opposition accused forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad of massacring 100 people.
