Xi Jinping-Putin meeting… Likely to mediate the war in Ukraine


Chinese President Xi Jinping will visit Russia for three days starting tomorrow (20th) and meet with President Putin.

It appears that President Xi will try to act as a mediator to resolve the Ukraine crisis during his visit to Russia, but there are concerns that it will have a negative impact.

Six months have passed since we met face to face at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit held in Uzbekistan in September last year.

This is President Xi’s first overseas visit after serving three consecutive terms as State President.

While bilateral relations and major international and regional issues are expected to be discussed, attention is being paid to see if President Xi will mediate to resolve the Ukraine crisis.

“China will maintain an objective and impartial stance on international regional issues, such as the Ukraine crisis, and will continue to play a constructive role in a political solution.”

After mediating to restore diplomatic relations between Saudi Arabia and Iran, the ‘enemies’ in the Middle East, the plan to become a ‘peace mediator’ to resolve conflicts in the international community met unexpected variables.

As the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for President Putin on charges of war crimes in Ukraine, the meeting suddenly took the form of a ‘criminal reception’.

Western countries, including the United States, are wary of the mediation offered by China, saying it would be one-sided and only reflect Russia’s position.

“The ceasefire allows Russia to further consolidate its position in Ukraine and reorganize its armed forces so that it can resume its offensive against Ukraine at a time of its choosing.”

In response, the Chinese media GloverTimes directly criticized the United States, quoting the words of an expert in China, saying, “It is intended to fan the flames of conflict and weaken Russia geopolitically.”

State-run media outlet Xinhua called the meeting between President Xi and President Putin “a scope for bilateral relations”, claiming that the development of China-Russia relations will not only benefit both countries, but also brings more stability to the world.
