During the 25th regular meeting with his Russian counterpart, Mikhail Mishustin, the Chinese Prime Minister stressed that the policy of goodwill between China and Russia has a long history. In June 2020, both nations celebrated 71 years of diplomatic relations based on "mutual support and respect."
"We will take advantage of Russia's and China's potential to also boost space cooperation," Mishustin said as he congratulated China on the Change 5 spacecraft's successful landing on the visible face of the moon on Tuesday.
