Wang said China was willing to work with the Russians on the nuclear sector and joint research on long-range jets and heavy-duty helicopters, China's official Xinhua News Agency reports.

Chinese and Russian militaries concluded joint military operations dubbed Peace Mission 2013 last week. The exercises, launched July 27, included a three-phase troop deployment, battle planning and simulated combat operations.

The Russian courtship follows meetings Monday between Chinese Minister for National Defense Chang Wanquan and U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel in Washington.

The Chinese general said he was in the United States to advocate a "win-win" scenario for the bilateral relationship of two of the world's most powerful nations.

"Our goal is to build trust between our militaries through cooperation," Hagel said in a statement Monday.
