BEIJING: China values Russian President Vladimir Putin's position on the South China Sea issue, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson said on Thursday.
"President Putin's position shows Russia to be objective and fair, and represents the voices of justice from the international community," Xinhua news agency quoted spokesperson Hua Chunying as saying.
A tribunal in July issued an "award" on the South China Sea arbitration, which was unilaterally initiated by the former government of the Philippines, that China has reiterated saying it will not accept any proposition or action based on the decision.
nabeel ahmed butt
love you china and love you chinese peoples (the most peacful peoples on earth).
Russia''s support for china is not good for entire world russia should stop supporting china. If it cannot support nation against china''s SCS stand than russia should better be neutral.
RUSSIA SHOULD NOT SUPPORT CHINA OTHERWISE U AND ALONG WITH THEM WILL DESTORY THE PEACE AND THE WHOLE WORLD WILL BLAME U FOR SUPPORT A BULLY OF THE ASIA.
So what did Putin say???
chinks are chinks only...
China is the BULLEY, putin should not support them
How come the P5 member of UN china, itself REJECTS UN''s ruling on SCS, what is the point of having UN then?
Indians can''t digest that Russia will support china.
Putin has no reason to side with either china or phillipines. He is busy in europe and west asia.
China cannot continue to be an international villain and yet aspire for super power status. China should stop its expansionist agenda in Asia !!!
Putin is a very shrewd politician who will not open his cards immediately.However the fact is that China is really looking nervous.
