Landsbergis took to Twitter to explain that it is because of statements like the one made by the Chinese ambassador to France that the Baltic states do not trust China as a "mediator" in the settlement of the war in Ukraine.
"If anyone is still wondering why the Baltic states don’t trust China to ‘broker peace in Ukraine’, here’s a Chinese ambassador arguing that Crimea is Russian and our countries’ borders have no legal basis," Landsbergis tweeted.
Also, when asked whether he considers Crimea to belong to Ukraine, the ambassador said that "it depends on how you perceive the problem," adding that "it's not that simple.".
Ukraine’s ambassador to France, Vadym Omelchenko, responded robustly to the Chinese diplomat’s remarks.
The Estonian Foreign Ministry is to summon its Chinese ambassador to seek clarification of the comments made by the Chinese diplomat in France. »
