Russia stages world’s largest military drills, NATO worried
China is sending 3,200 troops to take part in the Vostok 2018 exercises later this week.
He added he believed the "friendship is getting stronger all the time" between the two countries.
- Russian air force's S-300 and S-400 missile systems have been deployed at Vostok 2018 drills.
Hundreds of Chinese armoured combat vehicles, attack helicopters, fighter jets and thousands of soldiers take part in the biggest military exercise in Russian Federation since 1981, in a show of strength and friendship between Asia's two largest military powers.
North Atlantic Treaty Organisation has already condemned the war games as a rehearsal for "large-scale conflict" - and experts say they are without doubt the largest in modern Russian history. It also "signifies that the political strategic trust and military cooperation between China and Russian Federation has reached a historic high".
"We have trustworthy ties in political, security and defense spheres", said Putin, who also posed for a photo op with his Chinese counterpart to cook up traditional blini pancakes.
Tensions have been heightened between Russian Federation and the West in the wake of ongoing conflicts in Ukraine and Syria and the Novichok attack in Salisbury.

Pope summons bishops for February abuse prevention summit
A Vatican spokesperson said the meeting of the heads of national Catholic bishops conferences would take place February 21-24. All bishops are required to submit their resignation at the age of 75, but the Pope does not have to accept it.
The Russian Ministry of Defense yesterday broadcast images of military trucks being transported on trains, columns of tanks, armored vehicles and warships on the move, and combat helicopters and fighter aircraft taking off.
Anti-aircraft technology will be at the heart of the drills today, but the main exercises will be held tomorrow, according to the country's defence ministry.
"These are very important drills and they are part of routine annual work to develop the armed forces", Dimitry Peskov, Putin's spokesman, told reporters Tuesday.
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday (Sep 11) said that Moscow and Beijing plan to use their own national currencies more often in trade deals as Russia's relations with the West deteriorate.
Russian Federation has faced ever harsher sanctions since angering the West and Kiev by annexing Crimea in 2014 and backing separatist rebels in eastern Ukraine. Russia's previous military exercise in the region, Vostok-2014, was nearly half the size, with 155,000 soldiers participating.
Since then Moscow has increased the number of its large-scale military exercises in the Caucasus, the Baltic and the Arctic.
Last month, the Kremlin's spokesman said Russia's "ability to defend itself in the current global situation which is often aggressive and unfriendly to our country is justified, essential and without alternative".

Bruins Trade Defenseman Adam McQuaid to Rangers
The six-foot-four, 212-pound defenceman has recorded 13 goals and 53 assists for 66 points with 652 penalty minutes in 462 games. Giving up picks for a replaceable depth player doesn't make sense to me unless the Rangers see him in a bigger role this year.
