Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin signed two agreements on extending the strategic partnership until 2030.

Xi said he had constructive talks with the Russian leader during his visit to Moscow and talked about expanding trade and economic cooperation with Russia as China exports more electronics.

Putin said that an agreement has been reached on additional natural gas supplies to China, and both countries are planning to expand their transport links by building new roads and bridges.

Putin also said that many of the proposals in China’s plan to end the war with Ukraine coincide with Russia’s position and can be the basis for making peace with the West when Ukraine is ready for it.

Xi, on the other hand, pointed out that China adheres to the purposes and principles of the UN Charter, and emphasized that Beijing has taken an objective position in the Ukraine war.

Kremlin press representative Dmitry Peskov said that the two leaders talked about Ukraine for more than an hour on Monday, and this is an opportunity to clarify everything. Peskov added that the two leaders listened to each other and that this was the most important thing.

Beijing announced its 12-point plan on the anniversary of the Russian invasion. The plan essentially outlines China’s long-known positions and does not offer a realistic solution to ending the war.

China has declared it neutral in the Russia-Ukraine conflict but actually supports Moscow.
