Beijing. Vladimir Putin is once again on his first foreign tour after being elected President of Russia. Putin is on a visit to his traditional friendly country China on the world stage. Chinese President Xi Jinping has given him a grand welcome. Besides, the Heads of State of both the countries have also expressed their commitment to give a new level to mutual partnership and start a new era. The meeting between Xi Jinping and Putin is taking place at a time when West Asia is facing armed conflict. Instead of ending, the Israel-Hamas war is becoming more horrific and destructive. Israel has the support of America and Western countries. At the same time, war is going on between Russia and Ukraine. The stance of Russia and China is opposite to that of America and other western countries on both these issues.

It is worth noting that China and Russia announced in February 2022 to expand their partnership with the ‘no limit’ principle. This announcement was made just a few days before Putin sent thousands of troops to Ukraine. While the Western world was imposing sanctions on Russia, China was busy giving a new dimension to its friendship with Moscow. During the summit, Xi Jinping and Putin also signed a joint memorandum about the beginning of a ‘new era’. In this, a shared vision and new cooperation was announced on everything and issues from Taiwan and Ukraine to North Korea. In particular, it was agreed to increase cooperation in peaceful nuclear technology and economic sector. Russia and China are challenging the existing global order, which is led by America.

China’s President Xi Jinping and Russia’s Vladimir Putin promised to usher in a ‘new era’ of partnership between the United States’ two most powerful rivals. President Xi welcomed Putin on the red carpet outside the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. People’s Liberation Army soldiers marched past in Putin’s honor. Apart from this, Vladimir Putin was also given a 21-gun salute at Tiananmen Square. During this, children waved flags of China and Russia.
