[1번지이슈] Xi Jinping and Putin close to ‘anti-American unity’ … Ukrainian arbitration a ‘question mark’
Chinese President Xi Jinping and President Putin held a summit meeting in Russia.
In a joint statement, the leaders of China and Russia showed their anti-American solidarity by voicing with one voice that the United States is undermining world stability.
For more details, let’s talk to Park No-byeok, former ambassador to Ukraine.
Chinese President Xi Jinping, who is on a state visit to Russia for two nights and three days, had a summit with President Putin yesterday. On the first day, an informal one-to-one meeting with lunch was held for four and a half hours while showing intimacy, and the next day, the summit lasted only three hours. How do you see this summit?
In particular, the leaders of China and Russia insisted that NATO “respect the sovereignty and interests of other countries”, issued a strong warning message to the United States, and promised to cooperate on the issues of Taiwan and Ukraine. It looks like China and Russia are starting to build an anti-American front?
The two leaders were also seen prominently covering North Korea. You insisted that sanctions and pressure should not be imposed against North Korea, but in the end, do you think you have reaffirmed your will not to join the US sanctions against North Korea?
Do you think that the conflict between Korea, the United States and Japan, and between North Korea, China and Russia over the issue of the Korean Peninsula has become clearer through this summit?
China is a major customer for Russia, which was looking for an economic solution in a third country under Western sanctions. From China’s point of view, Russia’s cooperation is needed in response to this situation in a situation where the ‘internationalization of the yuan currency’ is promoted. Since it was at a time when economic cooperation was essential, it seems that economic cooperation between the two countries will accelerate further?
Initially, the Ukrainian answer attracted the most attention. At yesterday’s summit in Moscow, Xi said he supported dialogue, and Putin said China’s peace plan could be the basis for a solution. What do you think about the background of presenting a basic solution without any substance?
Meanwhile, President Xi Jinping expressed his intention to invite President Putin, whose arrest warrant was issued by the International Criminal Court, to visit China this year. Are you asking me to attend the One Lane One Way Forum?
Planting the United States, which sees the relationship between China and Russia becoming closer, seems uncomfortable. John Kirby, a spokesman for the White House National Security Council, refuted the joint statement between the Chinese and Russia one by one, pointing out the details. In particular, we have yet to see any indication that China intends to provide Russia with lethal weapons, but it is still a possibility. Doubts still appear about China’s arms supply?
Meanwhile, Japanese Prime Minister Kishida visited Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, and had a summit with President Zelensky. It is said to be the first time a Japanese prime minister has visited a war-torn country since the Second World War What do you think it means?
It is said that Prime Minister Kishida, who was visiting India, boarded a private plane and left for Poland without prior notice. The leader of China is going to Moscow, Russia, and the leader of Japan, an ally of the United States, is going to Ukraine, a contradictory move. It symbolically shows that the world is transitioning into a new Cold War system.
It is known that President Xi will also hold a video conference with President Zelensky after meeting with President Putin. Prime Minister Kishida met President Zelensky for the first time. In particular, Prime Minister Kishida invited President Zelensky to the summit of seven major countries to be held in Hiroshima in May. Is this also being interpreted as Japan’s broad diplomatic move to show solidarity with the West?
