China’s Xi speaks to Putin; calls for ‘negotiation’ with Ukraine

 Chinese State President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke by phone on the 15th to discuss strengthening cooperation between the two countries and the Ukraine issue, China's Government Central (CC) TV reported.




According to reports, Xi  said in a call on the day, “Countries must ensure that the Ukraine crisis is properly resolved responsibly,” and “China wants to continue to play a role in it.”




"China has always been independent and independent, starting from the historical history of the Ukrainian problem and the civil war, actively promoting world peace and promoting the stability of the world economic order,” he added.




It is a reminder that China has maintained a neutral attitude regarding the war in Ukraine.




In the meantime, China has urged a resolution through negotiations without condemning Russia's invasion of Ukraine or referring to it as "aggression."




The two countries have stated that they will continue to support each other in matters of sovereignty and security.




“China hopes that practical cooperation with Russia will be stable and continue,” Shi said of the relationship between China and Russia. “China hopes to continue to support core interests and grave interests such as sovereignty and security with Russia and to closely cooperate with the two countries' strategic cooperation.”




In response, Putin responded that he "supports the global security initiatives raised by China and opposes any force interfering in China's internal affairs under the pretext of Xinjiang, Hong Kong, Taiwan, etc."




In addition, he said, "We want to strengthen multilateral cooperation with China and make constructive efforts to promote global multi-polarization and establish a fairer and more rational international order."




Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told his country's Ria Novosti news agency later in the day that he would confirm the fact of the call between Putin and the city, and that the details of the call would be informed separately through a press statement.
