Putin denies creating military alliance with China


(MENAFN) Russian President Vladimir Putin has denied creating a military alliance with China, stating that their military cooperation is transparent and nothing is being hidden. In an interview with state television, Putin said that Western powers were trying to form more global alliances, accusing the United States and NATO of starting to build a new "axis" similar to the World War Two alliance of Germany, Italy, and Japan.

During a recent summit in Moscow, Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping pledged closer ties and professed friendship. Putin clarified that their cooperation in the sphere of military-technical interaction is not a military alliance, and everything is transparent with nothing secret.

The denial of creating a military alliance between Russia and China comes amid Russia's struggle to make gains in what it calls a "special military operation" in Ukraine. The international community has called for a peaceful resolution to the conflict in Ukraine, and tensions between Russia and Western powers have escalated in recent years.

Putin's comments about Western powers trying to form more global alliances reflect growing geopolitical tensions and the shifting balance of power in the world. The international community must continue to work towards peaceful cooperation and dialogue to prevent the escalation of conflicts and promote global stability.
