As the leaders of two of the world's biggest and fastest-growing emerging economies meet in Moscow, political analysts predict the strategic co-operation between the two nations could shift the balance of power in the world.
"I believe the world is now at a historic crossroads,” Dr Kiyul Chung told RT. “Or some may say the world is at the brink of either being subdued or overcoming the US/NATO military intervention in Libya, [which is] now moving possibly to Syria or even to Iran, if Russia and China, or [the] Shanghai Co-operation Organization are [too] weak to stop US-led NATO military aggression in [the] North African region So I hope Russia and China [can] lead this new global movement to balance the power in the world, so they can build new world order where no more unilateral, aggressive or even colonial methodology [is] being put into a sovereign nation such as Libya"[\quote]
Ahmadinejad’s address to fellow heads of state at the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in Kazakhstan will probably deepen suspicions that the bloc is intended as a counterweight to the United States across the region. In a declaration signed by all the member states, the group also attacked missile defense programs, another apparent dig at the United States.

It is very rare that great neighboring powers grow peaceful side by side. The moment the U.S. stops messing in world affairs (say if someone like Ron Paul becomes President or if the U.S. economy totally collapses), the Chinese and Russians will once again be at each others throats just like they have been for the past hundreds of years.
