    Russia and China may develop a joint response to the US missile defense systems' deployment in Asia, the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Department for Non-Proliferation and Arms Control said Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In a recent interview with Japanese media, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia and China has truly friendly ties and a partnership in many key directions.

    "I think that we [Russia and China] can give a joint response, coordinated response; the joint statement by the [countries] leaders on June 25 this year on strategic stability acts as an example," Mikhail Ulyanov told reporters.
