China refuses to sit idly by in the conflict in Ukraine, but it has no intention of helping to escalate it either. Such a statement was made by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi at a UN Security Council meeting in New York, a Lenta.ru correspondent reports.
China will not sit idly by and add fuel to the fire, we will continue to play our role in our own way.
The Chinese diplomat noted that the negative impact of the conflict is becoming more serious and called a peaceful settlement a top priority. He also supported the efforts of the European Union and leading European countries to establish a dialogue between Russia and Ukraine in the context of the crisis.
At the same time, we support the European Union and leading European countries to continue active mediation and do their best to achieve peace.
The day before, Wang Yi called for the resumption of direct talks between Moscow and Kyiv without preconditions. He added that the crisis around Ukraine is inextricably linked to everything that happens in the world, and “the more difficult the situation, the more important it is to find ways to cooperate.”
The West against Russia and China
On September 21, the Serbian president, Aleksandar Vucic, on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, allowed the deterioration of relations between the West and Russia and China and the expansion of the armed conflict worldwide.
According to the Serbian leader, the situation could escalate from a special military operation phase to a major military confrontation, “which we have not had since World War II.”
For all of us who want to be safe and ensure the safety of citizens, there is no good and easy news for us, and I hope that all we will see in the coming period is a further complication of relations between the West and Russia, as well as between West and China
Despite Western concerns about cooperation between the two powers, Russia and China do not aim to rule the world, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
He also drew attention to the fact that Moscow and Beijing have a similar attitude towards provocative actions, “the source of which is the United States of America.” According to him, Russia and China are unanimous in assessing “the inadmissibility of such destabilizing behavior.”
Realizing their bilateral relations, only Russia and China do not claim to lead the whole world. We know that other countries have this tendency
Meeting between Putin and Xi Jinping

In the face of the colossal changes of our time on a global scale, unprecedented in the history of our time, we stand ready, together with our Russian colleagues, to set an example of a responsible world power and play a leading role in bringing such a world that it quickly shifts to a path of sustainable and positive development.
