the president of China, Xi Jinpingleft Moscow, Russiathis Wednesday, the 22nd, after his official state visit to meet with the Russian president, Vladimir Putin. The visit to the neighboring country lasted two days, the first of which was a meeting on global issues, such as the war in Ukraine, and the second for debates on bilateral partnerships and economics. A virtual meeting between Xi and the Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelensky, is expected at this time. The Chinese representative defended the reduction of tension and conflict in Eastern Europe and presented a 12-point peace plan for the war, which was pointed out by Putin as a possible solution. “We proposed that China associate itself with the search for a peace formula, saying: ‘We invite you to dialogue, we await your response’ and, so far, we have received only a few signals, but nothing concrete”, said Zelensky about the wait for confirmation of the meeting with Xi after his visit to Russia. Xi and Putin even struck important political and economic deals during their meetings over the past two days. Trade between the two nations is expected to surpass the historic $200 billion mark this year, largely due to increased gas supplies to China in the context of the European boycott over the invasion of Ukraine.
