Interview with Aleksandr Lukin
Commenting on Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s statement that Russia, China and India are not planning to form a military alliance to counterbalance the US, Aleksandr Lukin said:
"I think it is quite clear for everyone that there cannot be a military alliance. The main idea is actually to harmonise the relations between the three countries. Russia and China used to have rather bad relations but now Russia-China relations are much better, though China and India still have a lot of problems. They have a border issue that is not resolved. Bilateral trade is growing, but it is not growing that fast. This is very far from a military alliance, of course.
