    Putin and Xi Pledge a New Era and Condemn the United States

    * Putin and Xi cast U.S. as Cold War hegemon
    * Pledge to deepen partnership in defence, trade
    * Say new era in Russian-Chinese ties is dawning

    BEIJING/MOSCOW, May 16 (Reuters) - China's Xi Jinping and Russia's Vladimir Putin on Thursday pledged a "new era" of partnership between the two most powerful rivals of the United States, which they cast as an aggressive Cold War hegemon sowing chaos across the world.

    Xi greeted Putin on a red carpet outside the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, where they were hailed by marching People's Liberation Army soldiers, a 21-gun salute on Tiananmen Square and children waving the flags of China and Russia.

    China and Russia declared a "no limits" partnership in February 2022 when Putin visited Beijing just days before he sent tens of thousands of troops into Ukraine, triggering the deadliest land war in Europe since World War Two.

    Xi, 70, and Putin, 71, signed a joint statement on Thursday about the "new era" that proclaimed opposition to the U.S. on a host of security issues and a shared view on everything from Taiwan and Ukraine to North Korea and cooperation on new peaceful nuclear technologies and finance.

    "The China-Russia relationship today is hard-earned, and the two sides need to cherish and nurture it," Xi told Putin.
    "China is willing to ... jointly achieve the development and rejuvenation of our respective countries, and work together to uphold fairness and justice in the world."

    Russia, waging war against NATO-supplied Ukrainian forces, and China, under pressure from a concerted U.S. effort to counter its growing military and economic strength, increasingly have found common geopolitical cause.

    Xi has told Putin the two have the chance to drive changes the world has not seen in a century, which many analysts see as an attempt to challenge a U.S.-led global order.

    It's good to see two countries wanting to trade instead of provoking war. This side gets things, so does that side, both countries competing internally to keep up with demand.

    Too bad the U.S. isn't getting a piece of that action. To much hatred and blame, not only within this country, but toward other countries as well.
