Xi to Visit Moscow
Kremlin and Chinese Foreign Ministry confirm that the Chinese President will visit Russia Monday for strategic talks
President Xi Jinping of China will make a state visit to Russia next Monday, the Kremlin and the Chinese Foreign Ministry have revealed. The trip will last until Wednesday. Xi will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin to discuss “aspects of further development of comprehensive partnership,” according to a statement from the Kremlin.
Talks will also focus on the international agenda and cooperation between the two nations in world affairs, the Kremlin added. Russian and Chinese officials are also expected to sign a number of bilateral agreements.
Putin invited Xi to Russia during a phone call in late December, but the date of the trip was not previously announced. The two presidents have been in frequent contact after Moscow launched its military operation in Ukraine in early 2022, both in person at international events and via video link.
“Chinese President Xi Jinping’s upcoming visit to Russia will be a trip of friendship, cooperation and peace.” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said on Friday.
Last month, Beijing revealed an initiative for a settlement to the conflict in Ukraine. Moscow said it would consider the proposal, but reiterated that Kiev’s refusal to acknowledge the new reality on the ground is a major obstacle to negotiations.
The Ukrainian government has stated that its goal is military victory over Russia and the expulsion of Russian troops from all territories that Kiev claims to be under its sovereignty. It has also prohibited any negotiations with Moscow as long as Putin remains in office.
The visit will also be a trip to foster peace, Wang said, noting that China and Russia will, on the basis of non-alignment, non-confrontation and non-targeting of any third party, practice true multilateralism, promote a multi-polar world and greater democracy in international relations, improve global governance, and contribute to world development and progress.
