The Guardian reported the information.

According to Mao Ning, China believes that all efforts to support peaceful measures in the Russian-Ukrainian war should be recognized.

These words came after Volodymyr Zelenskyy accused Russia and China of trying to weaken the planned Peace Summit in Switzerland.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman emphasized that China attaches great importance to relations with Ukraine and remains its largest trading partner. She added that Beijing's position on the peace conference is very “open and transparent.”

“We believe that we can get the understanding and support of all parties,” Mao said.

Background

On May 31, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Mao Ning said that China would not participate in the Peace Summit in Switzerland on June 15 and 16, given Russia's absence. 

“China has always insisted that the international peace conference should be recognized by both Russia and Ukraine, with equal participation of all parties, and that all peace proposals should be discussed in a fair and equal manner. Otherwise, it will be difficult for it to play a significant role in restoring peace,” Mao said.

Commenting on China's refusal to participate in the Peace Summit, the Russian leader's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, “We support this approach.”

Switzerland has invited over 160 delegations from around the world to join the Peace Summit, which will take place on June 15-16, 2024, in the resort of Burgenstock.

  • The Swiss Peace Summit on Ukraine to be held on June 15-16 will be attended by 107 states and international organizations.
  • Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy believes there is a chance to see US President Joe Biden at the Peace Summit in Switzerland on June 15-16.
