Chinese President Xi Jinping said that China and Russia are good neighbors, friends and partners during a press conference with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Tuesday.

Xi and Putin said that both countries oppose the unilateral installation of the THAAD anti-missile shield in South Korea.
They also called for restraint from all parties to ease escalating regional tensions, adding that Pyongyang is obliged to abide by UN Security Council resolutions.
The two countries' foreign ministers signed a statement on addressing the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula.
Chemical weapons in Syria
Xi and Putin said all parties concerned should respect Syria's sovereignty, and support an independent and comprehensive investigation into the alleged use of chemical weapons in the country.
The two leaders denounced the use of chemical weapons by any country.
