The Chinese diplomat added that Beijing was ready to cooperate with Moscow in preparation of the meetings between the leaders of the two nations at the BRICS summit in September.

Russia has stepped up its cooperation with China following the deterioration of its relations with the Western countries against the backdrop of the crisis in southeastern Ukraine. Both Moscow and Beijing cooperate in a number of areas such as energy, infrastructure and military.
