Russia and China extend agreement on notification of launches of ballistic and space missiles

Russia and China have extended an intergovernmental agreement on notifications of launches of ballistic missiles and space launch vehicles. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Defense.


The document was signed by the defense ministers of the two countries - Sergei Shoigu and Wei Fenghe. The Chinese side signed the documents earlier this month, after which they were sent to Russia. The agreement will be valid for 10 years.

I received from Beijing your signed copies of the protocol on the extension of the agreement on notifications of launches of ballistic missiles and space launch vehicles. I am ready to sign a protocol to extend this agreement for another 10-year period

- said the head of the Russian military department, adding that the extension of the agreement shows a high level of trust between the two countries.

The ministers talked via video link, expressing hope for a personal meeting next year, 2021. Shoigu said an intergovernmental agreement signed in 2009 between Russia and China on notifications of launches of ballistic and space missiles has shown its effectiveness in expanding the scope of predictability in the military sphere.

In turn, China's Defense Minister Wei Fenghe called the extension of the agreement an example of exemplary relations between the powers. According to him, Russian-Chinese relations are developing at a high level and "there are no restrictions" for the further development of relations.

    The Americans have pushed Russia into the "arms" of China.
    Well, China in the arms of Russia too.
    Six years ago, our relations with China were cooler.
    That way, they push it to the military alliance.

        Well, "hugs" have different strengths.
        You can kiss on the cheek, or you can hold on to the Faberge ...

          Putin and Xi Jin Ping are pretty sly, and do not kiss passionately, while they themselves quietly crush mattress mats from both sides.

    The military alliance between Russia and China is a nightmare for the United States.

    A little about the launches of ballistic missiles:

    The largest US military base outside the United States, Ramstein in Germany, was put on high alert on December 12 in connection with a missile threat.
    Air defense units were alerted in anticipation of a strike.

    As it turned out, the incident was caused by a salvo launch of ballistic missiles from a Russian submarine during a comprehensive check of combat readiness.

    You can imagine how the "partners" got shit

    Although the Chinese are our neighbors, this does not mean that they can be our friends until the grave - only temporary fellow travelers, and then for the time being!

    Why didn't you write that, that they had a training alarm, although they used the launch of Bulavs for it. And of course, write an educational one - it will not be possible to write that the partners are fucked up. And further. They did not reveal the topic of diapers and mass layoffs ...

      So it seems that the alarm was just not training, but combat. Then they quickly figured out that the mistake had come out, and they warned me (this is kind of necessary). And they canceled the fighting. Well, we trained once more +) It happens.
      Now, if I had not warned then yes. I remember Norway, like 10 years ago, without warning by firing a rocket into the air (we studied something there). It was then that they were fought for a long time and tediously (there was also a suspicion that this was a provocation by someone else's hands from the United States to test our systems), then it flew in to all scientists and NATO and the United States that this should not be done, it was very fraught with a "counter" blow to the entire block.
      The point is that there are no bad people in this world and everyone warns each other just in case, there is a suspicion that even the DPRK warns everyone that it will shoot then and there. And then the "sworn enemies of the capitalists" or the best friend of China may accidentally respond with fright by mistake. And who needs it?
      Israel recently (well, like a couple of years ago) also posted that they did not warn that it is not very good to shoot from a submarine in the Mediterranean without warning.

    What for? There will be no war with China. They are dissolving in China.

        The Russian Federation is an "energy superpower" and oil and gas reserves are running out. The one who cannot buy oil and gas before everyone else will become "the nucleus of crystallization of the future civilization."
