    Russia Hopes to Strengthen Ties with China's New Leaders

    China's ruling Communist Party unveiled a line-up of older and conservative officials on Thursday, led by party chief Xi Jinping, who will be faced with tackling issues including social unrest and corruption in the world's second-largest economy.

    Russia are confident that ties between the new countries will deepen even further as the new Chinese government settle in.

    "We have no doubt the 18th congress ... of the Chinese Communist Party will lead to the deepening of our bilateral relationship, a strengthening of friendship and of good neighbourly relations between the Russian and Chinese people," Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said.

    Does the new Chinese government have more of a propensity to deal with foreigners? or do Russia believe that the ties between the two nations would have deepened just as much had the old government remained in power?

    It seems to me that Russia is very active at the moment, trying to expand both East into Asia, and West into Europe. ANyone else noticed this?
