Putin, Xi suggest Chinese proposals for peace in Ukraine

(MENAFN) Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese leader Xi Jinping have suggested that Chinese proposals could be used as the basis for a peace settlement in Ukraine. Putin made the statement after holding talks with Xi in Moscow on Tuesday. The two leaders warned against any action that might push the Ukraine conflict into an uncontrollable phase, with both leaders emphasizing that there could be no winners in a nuclear war. Putin accused Western powers of fighting to the last Ukrainian, while Xi reiterated China’s neutral position on Ukraine and called for dialogue.

Putin said that many of the provisions of the peace plan put forward by China are consonant with Russian approaches and could be taken as the basis for a peaceful settlement when the West and Kyiv are ready. However, Putin noted that there was no such readiness from their side so far. China’s proposal lacks details on how to end the war, and the United States has been dismissive of the proposal. The US has argued that a cease-fire now would lock in Russian territorial gains and give Putin’s army more time to regroup.
