    MOSCOW, January 16 (RIA Novosti's Dmitry Panovkin ) - Russia and China have confirmed their intention to promote the UNO's central role on the world scene.

    This Friday, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Yury Fedotov and his Chinese counterpart Cheng Goping discussed at length the further bilateral partnership in the United Nations and its Security Council, reports the Foreign Ministry's Press Department.

    The sides emphasised the UNO's and Security Council's role in an effort to consolidate the regime of non-proliferation of mass-destruction weapons and their delivery systems as well as to prevent terrorists from laying hands on them. Relevant co-operation should be based on international law and collective support, reports the ministry.

    Under review was a common approach to political settlement and rehabilitation in Iraq and Afghanistan in light of the consolidation of the UNO's leading role in these directions.

    Yury Fedotov and Cheng Goping agreed to continue consultations between Russia and China within the framework of the UN human rights commission, in particular, at its forthcoming 60th session.
