Vladimir Putin And Xi Jinping Discuss Plan To Resolve The Conflict In Ukraine

Must Read

China’s President Xi Jinping arrived in Russia on Monday for a summit with Vladimir Putin where the two leaders will discuss a Chinese plan to resolve the conflict in Ukraine and show unity against the West.

During their face-to-face meeting, the Russian president assured his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping on Monday that Moscow and Beijing had “many common tasks and goals” during an informal meeting in the Kremlin to seal their alliance against the West. “We have many tasks and common goals,” Vladimir Putin said, welcoming the fact that Beijing pays “great attention to the development of relations between Russia and China.

Vladimir Putin has said he will discuss Xi Jinping’s 12-point plan to “settle the acute crisis in Ukraine”, during a highly anticipated visit to Moscow by the Chinese president.

“We’re always open for a negotiation process,” Mr Putin said, as the leaders called each other “dear friend”. China released a plan to end the war last month , including “ceasing hostilities” and resuming peace talks.

But on Friday the US warned the peace plan could be a “stalling tactic”. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said: “The world should not be fooled by any tactical move by Russia, supported by China or any other country, to freeze the war on its own terms.”

He added: “Calling for a ceasefire that does not include the removal of Russian forces from Ukrainian territory would effectively be supporting the ratification of Russian conquest.”

Ukraine and the United Kingdom have called on the Chinese leader to use his influence and press Moscow to end the war. Russia’s Investigative Committee opens a criminal case against the International Criminal Court prosecutor and judges who have issued an arrest warrant for Putin.

If the Black Sea grain deal is not extended in May, Putin says Russia would provide grain to African countries for free.
