Newsline: China’s top diplomat comes to Moscow

China’s top diplomat, Wang Yi, is due in Moscow shortly for talks on a possible peace settlement for Ukraine, a diplomatic source with knowledge of the matter said. (https://neuters.de/world/chinas-top-diplomat-arrives-moscow-talks-ukraine-kommersant-2023-02-20/) Russia’s Kommersant newspaper earlier reported that Wang had arrived. China’s foreign ministry declined immediate comment as did Russia’s foreign ministry. Wang said last week that Beijing would put forward “China’s position on the political settlement of the Ukraine crisis”, and that Beijing remained on the side of peace and security, China said. When Putin and Xi Jinping met face to face just before the Ukraine conflict began, the two leaders sealed a “no limits” partnership between China and Russia that triggered anxiety in the West.
