President of China, Xi Jinping, has stated that the world’s leading countries should strive to promote peace and security in Ukraine, and stop putting forward greed and selfishness.

On March 16, 2024, during his meeting with the Chancellor of Germany, Olaf Scholz, who was visiting the country since the end of last week, President Xi Jinping revealed points he consider crucial amidst the ongoing tensions between Russia and Ukraine, which have escalated in recent years.

Firstly, he stressed the need to prioritize support to peace and security and stop selfish interests.

He also said that the Western world should stop fueling the fire by providing aid to Ukraine because they are undermining peace negotiations.

The other thing that this president said would be a solution to this war, is to deal with the effects of this war on the world economy.

Chancellor Olaf Scholz promised President Xi that he is willing to find a peaceful way to stop the war because Germany has also been affected and has seriously hindered the supply of petroleum products in general.

Although China has not taken sides in the war between Russia and Ukraine, it has been accused by the West of the world for refusing to impose sanctions on Russia.

However, this is not the first time China has shown approaches to resolve the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. In February 2023, China showed its support for peace talks by proposing ten points to be considered in the negotiations.

At that time, Ukraine challenged what was shown by China, saying that it also had proposed ten points in 2022 to be considered in the negotiations, but they were rejected by Russia.

The President of China, Xi Jinping met with the Chancellor of Germany this week.
