Russia interested in cooperation with China on 5G: Russian FM

Russia is interested in cooperation with China on 5G technology, TASS news agency reported, citing Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

“We will definitely not follow the example of the Americans, who simply demand that everyone not cooperate on 5G with China, in particular with Huawei,” Lavrov said on Sunday at the All-Russian Youth Educational Forum “Territory of Meanings”, Xinhua news agency reported.

“On the contrary, we are interested in interacting with countries in order to jointly create modern technologies and implement them into practical life,” he added.

According to Lavrov, relevant ministries and departments are actively involved in the distribution of this technology in Russia.

For Russia, as well as for the whole world, 5G is a very important topic, the minister noted.
