From UPI, via monstersandcritics.com (link):
Sino-Russian relations must be built ‘on new mentality,’ said Chinese Ambassador to Moscow Liu Guchang at a recent on-line conference held by RosBusinessConsulting. It was devoted to the forthcoming official visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Beijing, where he will open the ‘Year of Russia in China.’
The Chinese ambassador`s words have a serious subtext, as is always the case with the Chinese statements prepared in advance. In this context the phrase about the ‘new mentality’ may be interpreted as a hint that as many Russians and Chinese as possible should meet anew. In other words, they should bring their ideas of each other into harmony with reality. If they can, they may use the experience of the 1950s when millions of citizens of both countries communicated with one another. But they should remember that half a century has passed since then, and both countries have changed beyond recognition.
