CHINA, 7 APRIL – According to China Central Television, Chinese President Xi Jinping requested that French President Emmanuel Macron work with him to devise a plan for resolving the Ukrainian conflict peacefully.
The Chinese side is willing to support it and play a constructive role, the statement said. “France can propose its unique plan to address the Ukrainian conflict.
Ursula von der Leyen, the head of the European Commission, and the president of France came in China on Wednesday for a meeting with Xi Jinping. Politicians’ discussions have increasingly focused on the situation in Ukraine.
The Chinese Foreign Ministry released a 12-point statement on resolving the Ukrainian situation in February. Respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all nations, the restart of direct communication between Moscow and Kiev, and a demand to stop further escalation are some of the key criteria.
This text is congruent with Russia’s strategy, as stated in the Kremlin. Moscow greatly appreciates China’s effort to contribute to the peaceful resolution of the situation in Ukraine, according to the Foreign Ministry.
Kiev questioned Beijing’s suggestions at the same time. This is not a “thought-out logistical proposal,” but rather “very general principles,” according to Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the head of the office of the President of Ukraine.
