Zelenskyy Wants to Hold Direct Talks With Chinese President Xi on Conflict in Ukraine



MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that he wanted to hold negotiations with Chinese President Xi Jinping on the conflict in Ukraine.

“I would like to talk directly. I had one conversation with [President] Xi Jinping that was a year ago… Since the beginning of the large-scale aggression on February 24, we have asked officially for a conversation, but we (haven’t had) any conversation with China even though I believe that would be helpful,” Zelenskyy told the South China Morning Post newspaper.

Russia launched its military operation in Ukraine on February 24. Many Western countries and some of their allies have condemned the move, calling it an invasion, as well as imposing special sanctions on Russia.

At the same time, China like many other Asian, African and Latin American nations, refused to join the sanctions. Moreover, Russia has drastically increased its oil exports to China since February 24.
