    Beijing stressed the need to depart from the double standards and strengthen equal and mutually beneficial relations in the world.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The China-Russia military cooperation is aimed at increasing mutual resistance to new threats and challenges, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said Monday.

    Following a meeting of Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and China's Vice Chairman of the Central Military Commission Fan Changlong, Antonov said:

    "Our Chinese colleagues stressed the concurrence of common positions on the issue of threats and challenges. They noted the need to restructure the current world order, to depart from the double standards and to strengthen equal and mutually beneficial relations in the world."

    According to Antonov, the two sides noted the "practical benefits" of the 2014 joint naval drills in the East China Sea.

    "In May and August of this year, there are two Russia-China naval training exercises planned in the waters of the Mediterranean Sea and the Sea of Japan," Antonov said.

    Russia and China will practice joint participation in peacekeeping operations, as well as counter-terrorism and anti-piracy actions in the Sea of Japan.
