MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Cooperation between China and Russia is at a 'best' level compared with those of the world's largest countries, Chinese Ambassador to Russia Li Hui said Monday.
"Chinese-Russian relations are the best relations of big countries in the world," Li said in an address to the Russian Academy of Sciences, devoted to the 66th Anniversary of the Founding of the People's Republic of China.
At the same time, the relationship between Beijing and Washington has much to work out, according to Li.
Earlier in September, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov said that the relations between Russia and China had reached "unprecedented levels."
Russia and China cooperate in many areas including energy, infrastructure, finance and defense.
