Beijing (EFE).- The Chinese Foreign Ministry today presented a document in which it explains in twelve points its “position for a political solution to the crisis in Ukraine” and in which it emphasizes the need for “dialogue and negotiations” and ” respect for the sovereignty of countries.
“Dialogue and negotiations are the only viable way out to resolve the crisis in Ukraine,” says the Ministry in a document published on its website, in which it abounds in some of the points repeated by Beijing in recent months and in the which calls for the international community to “promote peace talks”
Likewise, the Foreign Ministry affirms that China “is willing to play a constructive role.”
“Complex problems do not have simple solutions,” says the statement, which adds that countries must abandon “the cold war mentality” and the “expansion of military blocs”, while calling for the construction of a “security architecture balanced, efficient and sustainable European Union.
The document ensures that “there are no winners in a war” and calls for a ceasefire and that all parties “maintain restraint” to prevent the situation from “getting out of control.”
Cessation of “unilateral sanctions”
As it has already been declaring since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began, one year after today, Beijing insists on the need to respect “the sovereignty and territorial integrity” and “legitimate security concerns” of all countries and urges all parties to “jointly uphold the basic norms on which international relations are based.”
Beijing also demands the cessation of the “unilateral sanctions”, against which it has shown its opposition since the beginning of the conflict, for “not solving the problems, in addition to creating new ones”.
The Ministry expresses its opposition to the “use or threat of use of nuclear weapons” and warns that “nuclear war should not and cannot be waged”, while requesting “to maintain the security of nuclear power plants” in Ukraine.
Likewise, the Foreign Ministry indicates that it is necessary to “resolve the humanitarian crisis” with actions that “respect the principles of neutrality and impartiality”, “guarantee grain exports” and “protect civilians and prisoners of war”, supporting the “exchanges of prisoners” between Kiev and Moscow.
Concern about the economic impact
Beijing also calls for protection for “the stability of industrial and supply chains” and calls on all parties to “protect the existing economic order” and “oppose the politicization and instrumentalization of the world economy.”
Finally, China communicates its willingness to “provide help” in a “reconstruction after the war.”
Since the outbreak of the war in Ukraine, China has maintained an ambiguous position within which it has called for respect for “the territorial integrity of all countries”, including Ukraine, and attention to the “legitimate concerns of all countries”, in reference to Russia.
Barely a week before the war broke out, the presidents of both countries, Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin, pledged in Beijing to a friendship relationship “without limits”.
