  • Russian President Vladimir Putin gave ice cream to his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping while congratulating him on his birthday in Dushanbe Tajikistan

At a separate event on Thursday in Kyrgyzstan's capital Bishkek, China and Russian Federation reinforced their security ties at a summit of a Eurasian military alliance, amid persisting tensions with the United States.

"The Russian leader praised Xi Jinping's role in the development of bilateral relations and noted the success of the recent state visit by China's President to Russia", reads the Kremlin statement.

For his 66th birthday, Putin gave Xi a cake, a vase and a freezer full of icecream and other presents before leading a champagne toast.

The Kremlin said on Monday that Russian President Vladimir Putin and United States counterpart Donald Trump could meet briefly at the G20 in Japan next week.

Elon Musk says he's deleting his Twitter account
An offer never materialized, and the Securities and Exchange Commission later accused Musk of using Twitter to mislead investors. After a weekend filled with more Twitter tomfoolery, Elon Musk has finally "deleted" his account on the social network.

The Chinese president traveled to Russian Federation earlier in June and was the guest of honor at the annual St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

While in Russia, Xi visited Moscow Zoo with Putin, which received two Chinese giant pandas as part of "research cooperation".

Xi last week made a three-day visit to Russian Federation to visit Putin, whom he described as his "best friend", as the two countries seek to bolster ties amid shared tensions with the US. However, Trump cancelled a meeting with Putin at the G20 summit in Argentina's Buenos Aires in 2018 following an incident involving Ukrainian navy ships in the Kerch Strait, though the two leaders did hold a brief conversation on the summit's sidelines. "In the past six years, we have met almost 30 times".

As noted by the South China Morning Post, the warmness between the two countries may represent a strategic alliance against the United States, as the White House steps up its trade war against China and sanctions on Russian Federation.
