China and Russia to build moon base as counter to US and Japanese plans

A possible design for proposed Chinese-Russian moon base
A possible design for proposed Chinese-Russian moon base

The following is based on a translation from Chinese media:

Russia’s Moscow Times lists four top projects of cooperation between China and Russia to describe the increasingly closer ties between the two de factor allies.

We do not know whether the newspaper’s description aims at countering the closer ties between the US and Japan resulting from Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s current visit to the US.

However, the four projects, especially the establishment of a joint base on the moon do indicate the exceptional close ties between countries in the world.

The main project for consideration is a space base on the moon. As Japan and USA are also planning this, it is reasonable to think that this project is aimed at countering those two countries.

The other projects under consideration are: the joint development of the M-26 helicopter;the transaction of the S-400 missile system; and the joint development of a large airliner.
