China and Russia on Sunday voiced their shared opposition to unipolar hegemony during Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi's meeting with the new Russian Ambassador to China, Igor Morgulov, in Beijing.

Wang said both China and Russia are committed to a multipolar world, not unipolar hegemony, and to the international system with the United Nations at its core and international order underpinned by international law, not power politics.

"This stance is on the right side of history and in line with the trend of the times," he said, adding that the two neighbors should deepen strategic trust and pragmatic cooperation, further the China-Russia comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination and maintain international fairness and justice.

Both countries should also preserve the peace and stability of the region and the world at large, said the Chinese foreign minister.

Morgulov echoed Wang's remarks, saying Russia is committed to rejecting unipolar hegemony with China and jointly maintaining international order underpinned by international law and the UN Charter.

A former deputy foreign minister, Morgulov was appointed as Russia's new ambassador to Beijing in September, taking over the role from Andrey Denisov, who had been Moscow's chief envoy in Beijing since 2013.
