    MOSCOW, April 15 (Xinhua) -- The mutually beneficial military cooperation between Russia and China is not targeted at any third party but is aimed at consolidating global and regional security, says Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov.

    He made the remarks in a joint interview with Chinese reporters ahead of the Fourth Moscow Conference on International Security, which Chinese Defense Minister Chang Wanquan is expected to attend.

    "The military cooperation between Russia and China, which is open and transparent, is of substantial content and boasts broad prospects. And the defense ministries of both countries are devoted to furthering their coordination in the future," Antonov said.

    Russia-China military interactions have maintained good momentum, he said, citing the strengthening of consultations between the general staff departments of the two armed forces and the increasingly frequent exchange of visits by military delegations.

    "Russia-China military cooperation has shown a very pragmatic nature, for instance, improving the combat capabilities of both countries' military forces through joint drills, and sharing experience of military building through mutual visits," Antonov said.

    Besides, he also saw a huge potential in educational and cultural exchanges between two countries' military forces. "Russia is quite interested in the development of China's military medical science, hoping to promote related experience in our country," Antonov said.

    Antonov said that Russia has attached great importance to its rotating presidency of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) this year and plans to hold as many as 100 events in various areas including military defense.

    Both Russia and China are committed to the security and stability of the SCO, and the organization will continue to strengthen anti-terror cooperation this year.
