Kuleba and Gan discussed the importance of the principle of territorial integrity
“During my telephone conversation today with State Counselor and Foreign Minister of China Qin Gang, we discussed the importance of the principle of territorial integrity,” the head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
Kuleba said that he noted the importance of the “peace formula” of President Volodymyr Zelensky “for stopping aggression and resuming a just peace in Ukraine.”
As you know, President Volodymyr Zelensky presented his 10-point initiative to end the war at the G20 summit in Bali. Ukraine's proposals provide for the following:
- radiation and nuclear safety,
- food security,
- energy security,
- release of all prisoners and deportees,
- implementation of the UN Charter and restoration of the territorial integrity of Ukraine and world order,
- the withdrawal of Russian troops and the cessation of hostilities,
- return of justice
- countering ecocide,
- escalation prevention,
- fixing the end of the war
China also presented a peace plan
China, which does not use the term “war” for Russia's invasion of Ukraine, announced its plan for a peaceful settlement of the war at the Munich Security Conference.
The Chinese proposal for a peaceful settlement of the war refers to the need to respect the purposes and principles of the UN Charter. In particular, the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.
At the same time, China does not say anything about the withdrawal of the Russian military from Ukraine, and also states that “the legitimate interests of all states in the field of security” should be taken into account.
Volodymyr Zelensky, commenting on China's “peace plan”, noted the positive, as Beijing began to talk about its position on the war. He also said that some points of the plan could be used for Ukraine.
This week there was information about the visit of Chinese leader Xi Jinping to Moscow, where he will meet with President Vladimir Putin.
The media also reported that Xi Jinping plans to speak with Vladimir Zelensky for the first time in a full-scale war, probably after a trip to Moscow.
