Russia and China's foreign ministries on Tuesday held a round of consultations on anti-missile defense, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

"A thorough exchange of views took place on various aspects of this issue, including its global and regional dimensions," the ministry said in a statement on its website.

"The intention was reaffirmed to hold such consultations on a regular basis in the future."

Since invading Ukraine in February 2022 in what it calls a "special military operation", Russia has increasingly courted China for trade and diplomatic support.

China has not condemned the invasion, and Washington and other Western allies said earlier this year that China was considering providing weapons to Russia, something Beijing denies.
