Putin Eyes Deeper Ties with China, India

MOSCOW, July 9, 2012 (Xinhua) --

President Vladimir Putin on Monday listed China and India among his foreign policy priorities and vowed to deepen cooperation with the two emerging powers.

Addressing Russian diplomats and envoys here, Putin noted that strategic and practical interaction with China is of great importance.

"We will pay careful attention to deepening all forms of cooperation with the Chinese partners, including coordination of our actions on the international agenda," Putin said.

During his previous talks with Chinese officials, Putin said that the two emerging economies, with a strong developing momentum, are important forces in maintaining world peace.

In June, during his first foreign tours since returning to the Kremlin, Putin paid a state visit to China and talked with President Hu Jintao. There are "immense potential and broad prospects" for cooperation between the two giants, Putin told Hu.

Besides China, its largest neighbor, Russia also intends to foster ties with other emerging Asian countries who are gaining political weight, "first of all our longtime partner and friend, India," Putin said.

Putin also acknowledged that Russia did not pay enough attention to Latin American and African countries in the past, and vowed to strengthen ties with those partners.
