Xi Jinping China president has called for maximum restraint’ in Ukraine
BEIJING, March 8 – In his strongest statement on the situation to date, Chinese President Xi Jinping urged for “utmost caution” in Ukraine and said China is “painful to see the flames of war fanned in Europe,” according to official media.
According to Chinese official broadcaster CCTV, Xi said the three countries should collectively promote peace talks between Russia and Ukraine during a virtual conference with French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.
According to CCTV, Xi called the situation in Ukraine as “worrying” and stated that the objective should be to prevent it from growing or “spinning out of control.”
He also stated that France and Germany should work to mitigate the crisis’ harmful effects, and expressed concern about the impact of sanctions on global financial stability, energy supplies, transportation, and supply networks.
China has consistently emphasized its objection to what it calls illegitimate sanctions on Russia, but refusing to condemn or declare Russia’s actions in Ukraine an invasion.
As the war in Ukraine escalates, China’s friendship with Russia, which was strengthened last month when President Vladimir Putin attended the opening ceremony of the Beijing Winter Olympics on the same day that the two countries declared a “no limits” strategic partnership, has become awkward for China.
Moscow refers to its efforts in Ukraine as a “special operation” aimed at disarming its neighbor and deposing neo-Nazi leaders. This, according to Ukraine and its Western supporters, is a bogus excuse for an invasion to seize a 44-million-strong country. source
