Chinese President Xi Jinping shared on Tuesday, in a message read out by the country's Vice Premier of the State Council, Han Zheng, at the Russian-Chinese energy business forum, that the energy sector is the "cornerstone" of the bilateral cooperation between the two countries, while also serving as an "effective force in protecting global energy security."

"In the face of external risks and challenges, Russia and China are strengthening interaction and coordination, promoting major cooperation projects, demonstrating the high stability of Russian-Chinese energy cooperation," Xi remarked in the message.

Xi went on to say that Beijing has plans to further expand its energy partnership with Moscow. Russia previously commented that the energy trade between the two grew 64% in monetary terms, since the beginning of this year.
