"All aspects of our multifaceted strategic relations are covered by permanent dialogue… Today we have a good opportunity to look at the bilateral ties’ state, at the implementation of agreements, reached by the leaders and, certainly, get ready to the tomorrow meeting of BRICS foreign ministers," Lavrov said at a meeting with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi.
The minister stressed that the contacts between Russia and China were intensive at various levels.
"Last month you were in Moscow, then we recently met in Astana," Lavrov noted, adding that the two states’ leaders also supported regular contacts.
"It is very important for us to do everything possible for the basic principles of the international law as and the UN charter to remain the major instruments of building relations between countries and peoples," Lavrov concluded.
In March, Wang said that China and Russia were strategic partners with their relations based on fundamental interests of both countries and stressed that the two states relations were better than ever before.
