China says it will Work with Russia to Promote "Real Democracy"
Scary or a comedic routine? Who knows at this point...
A new vision of the New World Order is being tossed around between Russia and China like a hot potato after Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov made his first visit (since the invasion of Ukraine) to China yesterday.
The Russian diplomat visited for a series of meetings about the future of Afghanistan, but the bloody assault on Ukraine was likely to be the elephant in the room.
Recently, China has refused to condemn the Russian invasion and has also provided a level of aid to Russia. This aid has led the United States and allied officials to accuse China of signaling “willingness” to provide military and economic relief to Russia.
Yesterday, Lavrov gave the idea of a New World Order as he claimed the world is "living through a very serious stage in the history of international relations."
"We, together with you, and with our sympathizers will move towards a multipolar, just, democratic world order.”
Lavrov said in a video ahead of a meeting with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi.
"China-Russia relations have withstood the new test of the changing international situation, maintained the correct direction of progress, and shown tenacious development momentum."
The Chinese foreign ministry quoted Wang Yi.
Wang Wenbin, the foreign ministry spokesman, told reporters that both countries would “continue efforts to advance global multipolarity and the democratization of international relations." Wenbin also went on to add "the China-Russia cooperation has no limits." He concluded, "Our striving for peace has no limits, our upholding of security has no limits, our opposition towards hegemony has no limits.”
