NYT “Xi Jinping’s visit to Russia is a clear sign that he supports Putin… widening world divide”

From the 20th to the 22nd, Chinese President Xi Jinping will pay a state visit to Russia. President Xi, who is visiting Moscow for the first time since the start of the war, claims to be a ‘peace mediator’, but the US sees his actions as a clear sign of support for the Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The New York Times (NYT) said on the 17th (local time), “Global divisions over Russia’s actions in Ukraine have widened as President Xi said he would go to Russia for peace.” This is the clearest sign of the support of the

The White House expressed doubts whether Xi’s visit to Russia was a genuine effort for peace.

John Kirby, the White House National Security Council’s Strategic Communications Coordinator, objected to China’s call for a ceasefire at this point, saying it “would not lead to a just and lasting peace between Ukraine and Russia.”

“The armistice is now a reaffirmation of the Russian conquest,” said Kirby.” he explained.

President Xi’s visit to Russia came amid an unprecedented 3 consecutive visits in October last year, while the international community was voluntarily mediating peace. A week ago, long-time enemies Saudi Arabia and Iran announced a Chinese-mediated reconciliation. Xi is expected to hold a video conference with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Some point out that there is a calculation to build ‘anti-American unity’ by checking the United States behind the actions of President Xi.

In fact, Xi has sought contacts with leaders of countries that are openly hostile to the United States since relations with the United States recently soured. Last month, the President of Iran, Ebrahim Raishi, was invited as a guest of the state, and on the 1st he welcomed the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, who has been closest to Putin since the beginning of the war.

On the 6th, he attended the National People’s Political Consultative Conference, China’s highest policy advisory body, and said, “Western countries, especially the United States, have harmed themselves by omnidirectional obstruction, encirclement, and pressure against us, by brought an unprecedented and serious challenge to the development of our country “It was unusual for the public salvation of the United States.

The NYT said, “President Xi is increasingly determined to challenge any US-led world order by bringing other countries into a closer orbit with China.” “It is an effort to use its influence on the world and replace the influence of the United States in the center of the world.”
