Moscow, SANA- The parties involved can find a rational way out of the crisis in Ukraine if they adhere to the concept of universal security, Chinese President Xi Jinping stressed.
“We are convinced that a rational way out of the Ukrainian crisis and the path to lasting peace and universal security in the world will be found if everyone is guided by the concept of common, comprehensive, cooperative and sustainable security and continued dialogue and consultation in an equitable, prudent and pragmatic manner,” the Chinese President said in an interview with Russia’s Rossiyskaya Gazeta daily.
“China has all along upheld an objective and impartial position based on the merits of the issue, and actively promoted peace talks,” Xi stated.
“Not long ago, we released China’s Position on the Political Settlement of the Ukraine Crisis, which takes into account the legitimate concerns of all parties and reflects the broadest common understanding of the international community on the crisis,” Xi Jinping continued.
