Russian-Chinese relations in the military sphere are on an unprecedented rise, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said on Thursday at a press conference in TASS.

"I think that it is the highest point of developing relations over the last years and I am convinced that this is not the limit," Antonov said.

"We stand for joining our efforts to strengthen regional and global security," the deputy minister added.

"We not only consider the issues of strengthening and sustaining regional security, but also look at how our cooperation may affect the international situation," he said.

Military cooperation between the two countries envisages not only supplies of military equipment, but also technological cooperation and joint military drills.
