China and Russia vowed to strengthen communication and cooperation in international affairs as their two foreign ministers met in Bonn on Thursday.

Foreign Minister Wang Yi told his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov on the sidelines of the G20 foreign ministerial meeting that the countries should continue their firm support for each other and deepening comprehensive cooperation against the backdrop of the complicated development of international and regional affairs.

Also, China and Russia should go on helping maintain strategic stability in international affairs, Wang added.

China, he said, hopes to maintain high-level exchanges with Russia and communicate closely with it over major international and regional issues, and will firmly develop a bilateral comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination to jointly deal with various global challenges.

Lavrov said Russia hopes to work with China to arrange major bilateral agendas and strengthen strategic communication and cooperation on international affairs.

Both Wang and Lavrov agreed the countries should strengthen communication and coordination under the framework of the G20 and support an open and inclusive mechanism for the world economy and bilateral trade. They also agreed to enhance the role of the BRICS mechanism in the process of building a multilateral world.

The two also discussed the Korean Peninsula issue, agreeing to continue strengthening cooperation and make fresh efforts to help restart negotiations.
