Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that Beijing is ready to shoulder with Moscow to resist unilateral action, protectionism, and harassment in international relations.

In a telephone conversation with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, the diplomat confirmed China's readiness 'to protect the two countries' legitimate rights and interests.' He believes that together they can ensure international justice, RIA Novosti reports.

Wang Yi also noted that Beijing and Moscow, using their advantages, should help regional countries, including in fighting against coronavirus, maintaining stability and recovering their economies.

Russia and China continue to play the role of 'global stabilizers,' and their cooperation produces new results, the Chinese diplomat stressed.
