China's foreign minister has expressed condolences to his Russian counterpart on the killing of the Russian ambassador to Turkey, calling the assassination a "barbaric act of terrorism."

Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Tuesday that China strongly condemns such actions targeting diplomatic personnel and was "resolutely opposed to all kinds of terrorism."

Wang says China is willing to work with the international community in "resolutely supporting" Russia's efforts to crack down on terrorism and will boost cooperation with Moscow on this front.

Chinese and Russian leaders have in recent years extolled the blossoming strategic partnership between the former communist rivals, despite a major decline in two-way trade and the failure to materialize a slew of ambitious projects.
