Chinese and Russian officials spoke highly of the military ties between the two countries on Saturday as they met on the sidelines of the Shangri-La Dialogue being held in Singapore.

Lieutenant General He Lei, vice president of the Academy of Military Science of the Chinese People's Liberation Army said at a meeting with Russian Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin that the China-Russia comprehensive strategic partnership is at its all-time high.

He said leaders of the two countries paid much attention to bilateral military cooperation, laying a solid political foundation for the healthy and steady development of the military ties between the two countries.

Mr. Fomin attributed the healthy and steady development of bilateral military ties to close relationship between the leaders of the two countries, the independent foreign policies pursued by the two countries and their shared views on the multi-polar world, among other key issues.
