Huanqiu: China Must Create Conditions for an Alliance û a Sino-Russian Alliance Is Imperative

Huanqiu, China’s official newspaper, published an article stating, “While we adhere to a "non-alignment" policy, we must create conditions for an alliance for future needs.” The author believes that Russia is probably the best partner for a military-political alliance, along with a few small countries.

The author said on the one hand, “China should not establish a military and political alliance with Russia or other countries; and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) should not develop into a military and political group as long as there are no substantial changes in the international strategic situation and no serious threats to national security.” On the other hand, he suggests that China lay the necessary foundation for a future alliance in case of a crisis so as to avoid international isolation.
