Moscow and Beijing share a common interest in weakening US global influence and are actively cooperating in that regard, according to the report of the US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia and China are trying to weaken the influence of the United States on the world stage, the US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) said in its report published Thursday.

"Moscow and Beijing share a common interest in weakening U.S. global influence and are actively cooperating in that regard. Military cooperation between the two countries is slowly expanding, as are economic ties," the DIA said in its Russia Military Power report.

The DIA is part of the US Department of Defense (DoD) and the Intelligence Community (IC). It informs national civilian and defense policymakers about the military intentions and capabilities of foreign governments and non-state actors.
