Panellists noted the growing international tensions associated with the U.S. leading trade war against China and the growing China-U.S. contradictions, being not only economic, but also geopolitical. In such conditions, Russia and China face the need to find new points of contact, including the area of regional cooperation and bilateral trade development.
