    The cooperation of China and Russia is a vivid example of the relations between major world powers and neighbors, Deputy Foreign Minister of China Cheng Guoping said.

    The 11th Lanting Forum was held in Beijing by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the People's Government of Hebei Province, China.

    “The importance of relations between Russia and China is based on the principle of non-alignment and lack of confrontation against other countries. Based on this, our relationship has reached a level of comprehensive strategic partnership and cooperation. This is a prime example of relations between major powers and neighbors of the world,” Deputy Foreign Minister of China Cheng Guoping said, speaking at the Lanting Forum, reports RIA Novosti.

    The theme of this year’s Lanting Forum was the 70th anniversary of the Victory over Nazi Germany and the end of World War II.

    The forum was attended by the Russian Ambassador to China Andrei Denisov, diplomatic envoys, representatives of 80 countries and international institutions of China.

    During his speech, Guoping further stressed that relations between the two countries have become a "strong positive force in maintaining peace and promoting development worldwide.”

    He added that Russia and China support the UN's central role in the regulation of international issues, follow the principles of the United Nations and support the resolution of conflicts on the basis of the principle of equality.

    “We [China and Russia] promote the principle of inclusiveness, respect the diversity of cultures and civilizations and promote dialogue between different nations. Together, we promote human development,” Guoping added.
