Chinese Foreign Minister Chen Gang said in a speech in his country that Beijing is deeply concerned about the conflict in Ukraine, which “threatens to intensify and even derail it.”
According to him, China will work with the international community to encourage dialogue, and expects to present a proposal this week for a political solution, according to Agence France-Presse.
– At the same time, we call on the concerned countries to cease fire as soon as possible and stop blaming China, he says, referring to the United States, which accused China of considering sending weapons to Russia, which China denies.
As the anniversary of Russia’s large-scale attack on Ukraine approaches, there is more confirmation that support for Ukraine remains strong. US President Joe Biden visited Kiev on Monday in an act of solidarity, the same day that Japan announced it would support Ukraine financially in the US$5.5 billion package.
– Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said at a press conference that Japan is in a position to lead the world’s efforts to support Ukraine in its fight against Russian aggression.
He also announced that he is hosting a web-based meeting of the Group of Seven on Friday, which Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will also attend.
