    Editor's Note    

Prime ministers from the neighboring countries of Russia (Dmitry Medvedev), India (Manmohan Singh) and Mongolia (Norovyn Altankhuyag) kick off their visits to China on October 22. The three countries are important neighbors of China and it seems a coincidence for their prime ministers to arrive in Beijing on the same day.

Global Times: Chinese diplomacy on steady course
The Sino-Russian strategic partnership has been seeing benign development ever since the Yeltsin era and their bilateral economic, political and security interests are gradually being consolidated.

Despite a number of headaches between Beijing and New Delhi, China-India relations have in a sense become a paragon of ties among countries with territorial disputes. Neither China nor India can afford to suffer a worsening relationship.

Mongolia, long viewed as a wedge beside China, is also happy to undergo smooth development in bilateral ties.

People’s Daily (Overseas edition) : Prime Minister visits bring win-win results
Despite misunderstandings in the past, China and its neighbors of Russia, India and Mongolia, now look forward to a bright future of friendship and cooperation. There is no doubt that national interests drive all diplomatic policy.

Russia has shown sincerity in its strategic cooperation with China despite current economic and geopolitical conflicts. India views its relationship with China as a valued basis for bilateral cooperation amid concerns of border issues, the trade deficit and China’s relations with Pakistan. Located between China and Russia, Mongolia has a diplomatic priority to develop relations with China and Russia, and hopes to benefit from its proximity between the two.

China will adopt a strategy of seeking common ground on major issues while maintaining minor differences with the three neighbors. In this way, common interests will eventually outweigh any other disagreements and strategic cooperation will benefit all.

Xinhua: Golden opportunity to hone world-defining China-Russia partnership

Every sober mind understands that drastic changes of the world order are a ready recipe for chaos and thus unlikely to benefit any member of the international community.

The vision shared by China and Russia is for all nations to learn from and adapt to each other and join hands to build a truly fair and just world order: Hegemony gives way to equality, cooperation replaces confrontation, and the diverse nations across the world coexist peacefully and prosperously.

Foreign media reports:

Itar-Tass News Agency (Russia):

The situation in the Middle East and in North Africa is among the main topical international themes on which Moscow and Beijing are focusing their attention. We jointly come out in favor of peaceful, evolutionary changes in the region; we condemn violence wherever it comes from. Russia and China welcome Syria's decision to join the Convention banning chemical weapons; we favor the earliest convocation of the Geneva-2 conference to discuss a political solution to the Syrian problem; and we do not accept attempts at legitimatizing the policy of the dictates of force through UN Security Council resolutions.

The Times of India (India):
Resolution of border tensions is the "fundamental basis" for improving India-China bilateral relations in all areas and is expected to be a key part of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's agenda in Beijing next week.
