President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has said he sent a straight message through diplomatic channels that he wanted to talk to Chinese leader Xi Jinping.
Source: Zelenskyy, in an interview with a Japanese news agency Yomiuri.
Quote from Zelenskyy: "I did not get a proposal from China to mediate.
I also, by diplomatic channels, gave straight messages that I want to speak with the leader of China.".
Details: Zelenskyy voiced scepticism about China's 12-point proposal calling for a ceasefire and peace talks between Russia and Ukraine, saying that "respect of sovereignty and territorial integrity" should come first.
The Defence Intelligence of Ukraine believes that China will care for its own interests and will not provide any military assistance to the Russian regime.
Chinese leader Xi Jinping visited Russia, where he met with Vladimir Putin and signed agreements to continue the strategic partnership between the two countries. »
