"It should be understood that each country plays its own geopolitical game.The UK and France really want to support our country. However, there may be some competition between these two countries on the issue of assistance to Ukraine.

Accordingly, Xi Jinping's visit to France is aimed at discussing economic cooperation. However, we hope that the meeting with Xi Jinping will also focus on supporting the Ukrainian peace formula," he added.
