Jinping will reach Moscow today to meet Putin: Strategic partnership between the two leaders will be discussed; the Chinese President will try to stop the war
Chinese President Xi Jinping will reach Moscow today on a two-day visit. Here he will meet Russian President Vladimir Putin. Jinping is going to Moscow for the first time since the start of the Russia-Ukraine war. The closeness of the two leaders is deep despite many differences.
After the war broke out, China was seen standing with Russia. When America imposed sanctions on Russia, China opposed this move of the US and called it a step to add fuel to the fire. Apart from this, like Russia, China has also objected to the expansion of the North Atlantic Treaty (NATO).
Now the question arises what is the purpose of Jinping going to Moscow? Do they want to end the war? The answer is- Jinping is trying to become a global leader. Their effort is that even if the war does not end, at least they can persuade Putin and Zelensky to ceasefire. After this, diplomatic channels will open and China will start being called the global leader.
According to Russian officials, the two leaders will discuss expanding the comprehensive and strategic partnership between Russia and China. There will also be talks on deepening Russian-Chinese cooperation in the international arena. Apart from this, Jinping and Putin will sign an important bilateral document. No information related to this document was given.
On 30 December 2022, Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin had a video call for 8 minutes. During this, Putin asked to increase military cooperation between the two countries. On this, Xi Jinping said that China is ready to provide strategic cooperation to Russia amid the ongoing difficult situation in the world.
The two countries had signed a 'no limit' strategic partnership after starting the war in Ukraine. After the ban on European countries, China has increased its purchase of Russian oil and gas. In return, Russia is also supporting China on the issue of Taiwan. China has always claimed Taiwan as its share. At the same time, Putin has also considered Taiwan as an integral part of China.
On 4 February 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin reached Beijing for the inauguration ceremony of the Winter Olympics. Here he said that Russia supports the 'One China Policy'. Both countries had also talked about cooperation to protect each other's interests. This includes not accepting any other country's interference in their sovereignty, territorial integrity and domestic affairs.
