Putin says U.S. strikes on Syria illegal, harm U.S.-Russia ties - agencies

  Putin says U.S. strikes on Syria illegal, harm U.S.-Russia ties - agencies Russian President Vladimir Putin believes that U.S. cruise missile strikes on a Syrian air base broke international law and have seriously hurt U.S.-Russia relations, news agencies cited the Kremlin as saying on Friday. Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov was cited as saying that the Russian leader, a staunch ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, regarded the U.S. action as "aggression against a sovereign nation" on a "made-up pretext" and as a cynical attempt to distract the world from civilian deaths in Iraq.Peskov was quoted as saying that Russia did not believe that Syria possessed chemical weapons and that the U.S.

Russia and China now cooperate and coordinate to an unprecedented degree — politically, militarily, economically — and their cooperation, almost without deviation, carries anti-American and anti-Western ramifications.

China - Russian relations stand at an unprecedented height driven by trade and energy cooperation, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Tuesday, himself a fan of ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tze. Russia will protect all foreign investors, including those from China , he said.

Moscow has gone to great lengths to affirm its relationship with the economically prosperous China, particularly since 2014 when Russia’s annexation of Crimea from Ukraine dramatically worsened its relationship with European states. Last year Russia and China launched a mass naval drill together in the South China Sea.

Over 50 Russian federal entities have “brotherly” ties to Chinese provinces, Denisov stated, adding that contact will only grow in the run-up to September 2017’s BRICS summit of emerging national economies in Xiamen, Fujian Province, in eastern China, which encompasses Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.

Through participation in the BRICS group and the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, as well as political delegations to China, Russia has sought to present China as a major partner. According to state polls, the majority of Russians now consider China a strategic and economic partner.

Despite relative closeness on planned energy and trade projects, analysts remain skeptical about the level of trust between Moscow and Beijing for any long-term political commitments.
