Russia and China’s foreign ministers criticized the use of “neocolonial practices” in international relations at a meeting Thursday on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in Goa, India.
Sergey Lavrov and Qin Gang said that such a method of conducting affairs has a destructive impact on the development of many states, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
The top diplomats also discussed the increased activity of the West in the Asia-Pacific region, emphasizing that its efforts to establish military blocs undermine regional security and stability.
