Russia last month announced the plan to organize a joint exercise Vostok from August 30 to September 5 in the East with foreign forces but did not specify countries.
The Russian -China relationship under President Vladimir Putin and President Xi Jinping became more and more close.
In October 2021, Russia and China held common naval drills in Japan.
China and India were two major economies without pressing Russia's sanctions, even increasing the country's cheap oil to buy, despite the Western conflict pressure in Ukraine.
China was Russia's largest trading partner, with a US $ 147 billion last year transactions, up 30% compared to 2019.
When the Russian economy began to infuse the Western sanctions, Moscow hurriedly searched for support from allies and partners around the globe.
The talk with the Russian president on the right birthday of China showed that Beijing was ready to support Moscow between pressure from the West.
