China’s proposal for a peace plan in Ukraine, “can be taken as the basis for a peaceful settlement in Ukraine, when the West and in Kyiv are ready for it,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday.
"We believe in many of the points on the peace plan put forward by China,” he added.
Putin said he also discussed sanctions with his Chinese counterpart.
“When we discussed international problems, we stated that Russia and China’s views are converging and very close on a number of them,” Putin said. “Tension in a number of regions in the world is increasing, the conflict and crisis potential is growing, the practice of using illegitimate politically motivated sanctions and other restrictions is expanding.”
“China and Russia are against any states violating the interest of other countries for the sake of military, political or economic benefit,” Putin said.
