SOCHI, October 11. /TASS/. China strongly opposes the sanctions against Russia and considers them a mistake, China’s Vice Premier Wang Yang said on Saturday.
“The wonderful city of Sochi to an extent represents Russia’s viability, and thus our thought is the Western countries imposed mistakenly the sanctions against Russia,” he told the 18th meeting of the Russia-China commission on preparations for regular meetings between government leaders.
At critical moments, like the one happening now, solidarity is above all, he said.
“We are sure that despite unstable outer factors the Russian people will be able to be determined enough to overcome the current problems,” he said. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin and China’s President Xi Jinping had tasks, results of which have favoured additional mutual support and openness, joint response to outer risks, as well as options for mutual borrowings.
The Chinese vice premier said Western countries now were trying to support the opposition in Hong Kong.
“Their purpose is clear - they want to organise the so-called colour revolution,” he said adding that under the current circumstances Russia and China should focus on development of mutually advantageous cooperation, thus responding to the West.
Wan Yang said the current meeting’s tasks are not only preparations for the meeting of the two prime ministers, but also discussions of projects in various spheres. Following instructions from Russian and Chinese leaders, co-chairs of the intergovernmental commission had three working meetings and organised a working group on implementation of strategic projects.
