A senior Chinese military officer has expressed the Asian country's interest in further expanding military ties and mutual build-up of armed forces with Russia.

China's Chief of the General Staff of the People's Liberation Army Chen Bingde said on Sunday that Beijing intends to step up its military cooperation with Moscow and engage in a bilateral promotion of force build-up and exchange of “achievements in military reforms,” China's official Xinhua news agency reported.

Chen, who was on a three-day official tour of Russia, visited several military units of its northern neighbor as well as the Kuznetsove aircraft carrier and the Akula-class K-317 Pantera nuclear attack submarine in the northern Russian city of Murmansk.

The Chinese official' visit came at the invitation of Russian Chief of the General Staff and First Deputy Defense Minister Nikolai Makarov and it is part of Chen's three-nation tour which will also take him to Ukraine and Israel.
