China Calls for Recognition of All Peace Efforts in Russia-Ukraine Conflict Resolution

BEIJING – China has reiterated its stance on the Russia-Ukraine conflict, emphasizing the importance of recognizing all efforts aimed at fostering peace in the region. Mao Ning, a spokesperson for the Chinese foreign ministry, addressed the issue on Monday, underscoring China’s commitment to peaceful resolution.

Asserting that China has not engaged in provocative actions or contributed to escalating tensions, Mao emphasized the nation’s neutrality in the conflict. Responding to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy’s accusations of attempts by Russia and China to undermine a planned global peace summit in Switzerland, Mao reiterated China’s dedication to constructive engagement.

Highlighting the significance of China’s relationship with Ukraine as its largest trading partner, Mao reaffirmed China’s open and transparent approach to the peace conference. “We believe that we can garner understanding and support from all parties involved,” stated Mao.

Switzerland’s initiative for a comprehensive peace summit, slated for mid-June, seeks broad participation from various stakeholders worldwide to pave the way for a sustainable peace process in Ukraine.

While Russia and China have strengthened their diplomatic ties, with a proclaimed “no limits” relationship, China has refrained from direct military involvement in Russia’s actions in Ukraine. Despite the close relationship, China has not provided weapons or ammunition for Russia’s war efforts.

China’s reiterated call for recognition of all peace efforts underscores its diplomatic stance of advocating for a peaceful resolution to the Russia-Ukraine conflict. As global efforts intensify to address the crisis, China’s position as a key player in regional stability and diplomacy remains significant.
