MOSCOW -- Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov today began a visit to China with a call for Moscow and Beijing to reduce their dependence on the U.S. dollar and Western payment systems to push back against what he called the West's ideological agenda.
Lavrov, on a two-day visit to China, is expected to hold talks with his Chinese counterpart at a time when both countries' ties with the administration of U.S. President Joe Biden are badly strained.

Asante Gold C$5 Million Placement Is Oversubscribed
and Another C$2 Million Is Accepted;
Drilling Finds 7.47 g/t Gold over 30 Meters
Monday, March 22, 2021
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Canada -- Asante Gold Corp. (CSE:ASE, Frankfurt: 1A9, U.S. OTC:ASGOF) announces that assays have been received for the first hole of a three-hole geotechnical drill program at our Kubi Gold project in Ghana.
DDHK21-001 was collared approximately 100 meters to the north of the Kubi Pit, near the middle of the 1Kubi Main Mineral Resource. On this section gold mineralization has been previously outlined to a depth of 450 meters. The gold is free milling and occurs within a near vertical 1-kilometer by 1-meter to 15-meter-thick shear-bounded "garnet" zone.
Gold is associated with up to 30% garnet and 15% sulfide mineralization and as coarse gold in late quartz veins.
The drilling has confirmed typical Kubi Main Zone gold mineralization.
-- 30 meters grading 7.47 g/t gold (true width estimated at 7.5 meters), including:
-- 14.31 g/t over 10 meters.
-- 5.69 g/t over 9.0 meters.
-- 10.75 g/t over 16 meters.
Given the presence of visible gold and the numerous high assays received, samples have been resubmitted for screened metallics assays, which give more exact results when coarse gold is present. Further results will be announced as received. ...
... For the remainder of the announcement:
U.S. and Chinese officials on Friday concluded what Washington called "tough and direct" talks in Alaska, while Russia's ambassador arrived back in Moscow on Sunday for consultations after Biden said he believed President Vladimir Putin was a killer.
Russia is also braced for a new round of U.S. sanctions over what Washington says was its meddling in the 2020 U.S. presidential election, which Moscow denies.
Speaking to Chinese media before the start of his visit, Lavrov said Moscow and Beijing were compelled to develop independently of Washington in order to thwart what he said were U.S. attempts to curb their technological development. ...
