Russia and China Cooperating in 'All Areas,' Envoy Says Amid Weapons Fears

Russia's ambassador to China said attempts to drive a wedge between the countries will fail amid U.S. concerns that Beijing might supply arms to Moscow. Igor Morgulov told the Chinese government newspaper the Global Times that "anyone who has bad intentions and may try to break our friendship will not succeed."

Citing increased trade between the countries, he told the publication: "We are good neighbors. As the Chinese proverb says: 'A near neighbor is better than a distant relative.'"
