The Chinese President, Xi Jinpingand the Russian president, Vladimir Putinannounced a strategic partnership in Moscow a year ago with the aim of countering the influence of U.S and that, according to them, there would be no “prohibited” areas of cooperation.

Ma also met Russian Deputy Foreign Ministers Andrey Rudenko and Sergey Vershinin during his Feb 2-3 visit, the statement said.

During their meetings, he exchanged views on bilateral and multilateral cooperation, as well as international and regional issues of common interest, he added.

The statement comes on the heels of heightened tensions between China and the United States following the flight of a Chinese balloon into US airspace. Washington has described it as a spy balloon, while China says it is a blimp used for civil meteorological and scientific purposes.

The episode led to the postponement of a visit to China by Secretary of State Antony Blinken, which was due to start on Friday.

The Foreign Ministry’s statement on Ma’s visit did not mention the Ukraine, invaded by Russia almost a year ago. China has refrained from condemning the Russian military action or calling it an “invasion”.

Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov said on Thursday that Moscow’s relations with China are limitless and, while not a formal military alliance, are of a much higher and broader nature.
