Abstract | Full Text

Responding to changes in the world, Russia has proposed the Greater Eurasian Partnership for the international cooperation agenda. At the same time, the possibility of linking that partnership with the Belt and Road Initiative for international cooperation is one of the key factors in implementing this agenda. Alignment between the development strategies of Russia and China in the field of global, regional, and bilateral relations lays the foundation of successful cooperation between a number of countries, regions, and organizations. For the Eurasian Partnership to succeed, it must strictly adhere to WTO rules and take a tolerant attitude toward the diverse mechanisms for cooperation that various countries and regions have developed. Keywords: Eurasian Partnership, Belt and Road, strategic linkage, Russian–Chinese relations
