May 22, 2019 at 09:39 GMT +00:00 · Published

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov held bilateral talks with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi in Bishkek on Wednesday as part of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Council of Foreign Ministers meeting.

The Russian diplomat said that the SCO will continue to be at the forefront of the struggle for justice throughout the world.

Discussing Sino-Russian relations, Lavrov stated “We appreciate our relations [with China], especially in a period that is characterized by an increase in instability in international affairs, an increase in conflict potential.”

“The decisions that were approved at this session will further strengthen the voice of the SCO in international affairs in support of the supremacy of international law, the UN Charter, and the norms of the World Trade Organisation,” he added.

The SCO foreign ministers reportedly reviewed a draft final declaration for the upcoming summit in June, containing joint approaches to building up cooperation within the organisation, as well as coordinated positions on international and regional issues at the meeting in Bishkek.
