US belief that China wants military bases in Arctic ‘totally baseless’ – Beijing’s envoy to Moscow

Beijing sees itself as a “near-Arctic” state and is actively participating in creating international rules and regulations governing the Arctic, Ambassador Li Hui told show host Sophie Shevardnadze.

“We have been working together to develop the Yamal LNG project and these joint efforts proved to be very efficient. They can serve as a model of win-win cooperation between China and Russia. Our two countries have many other joint research projects. We hope that relations between our countries will grow even deeper and we will continue our strategic cooperation and partnership in the Arctic,” he said.
