The national flags of China and Russia are seen on Red Square, Moscow.
Russia won't join any alliance aimed against anyone, especially against China, as Moscow and Beijing share special relations, the Kremlin said Friday.
Calling China "our partner," Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told a daily briefing that the two countries have developed "relations of a special partnership."
Speaking at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library in California on Thursday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called for creating a "new alliance" to counter China.
Peskov for his part said that all alliances Russia takes part in are aimed at developing relations of good-neighborliness and mutual benefit.
