By the end of the 20th Century, after the dissolution of the former communist block and the end of the bipolar world, Russian Federation as the successor of the former Soviet Union had to face the new multi-polar world and its challenges. With a weakened economy and little international influence, Moscow had to elaborate and put in place a new foreign policy and foreign economy policy. In this context, the Euro-Asian continent and, especially, the Far Eastern region represented a strategic interest. The consolidation of economic and political relations with Japan and China as a regional partnership is not only a strategic question for Russia it represents the only viable solution for a long term regional stability and security frame in the region.
