24 Feb. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Government of China has defended after the presentation of its peace plan for Ukraine that Beijing maintains an “objective and fair” position on the conflict and that, since it broke out a year ago, it has tried to play a “constructive” role to try to solve it.
The Asian giant has put a peace plan on the table this Friday in which it generally calls for respect for territorial integrity, calls for the end of international sanctions against Russia and proposes a ceasefire, among other measures.
The spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Wang Wenbin, has defended at a press conference that his government has always “actively promoted peace talks” and has adopted its positions in each specific case, regardless of possible international trends.
For Beijing, being on the side of peace and dialogue is being “on the right side of history”, although in the last year this position has come from not clearly criticizing the invasion ordered by Russian President Vladimir Putin. In addition, he has also pointed out that Ukraine drags “a complex historical context”.
The spokesman for Chinese diplomacy has confirmed contacts with all parties, “including Ukraine”, a day after Ukrainian President Volodimir Zelensky opened up to a possible meeting between Kiev and Beijing to discuss the peace plan.
