China has refused to condemn Russia for its invasion of Ukraine, while blaming the US and NATO’s eastern expansion for worsening tensions.
US President Joe Biden will hold talks with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping on Friday, the White House said, on issues including Russia’s war in Ukraine.
Beijing has refused to condemn its close ally Russia over its invasion of Ukraine, while blaming the United States and NATO’s eastern expansion for worsening tensions.
“The two leaders will discuss the management of competition between our two countries, as well as Russia’s war against Ukraine and other issues of mutual concern,” the White House said in a statement.
China is under intense diplomatic pressure from the United States and its European allies to draw its lifeline from a separate Russia. But three weeks after its invasion of Ukraine, Beijing has shown few signs of abandoning its friends in the Kremlin.
US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan and the Chinese Communist Party’s chief diplomat Yang Jiechi met at a hotel in Rome this week in what the White House described as a “substantial” session.
The United States later expressed concerns about the “alignment” between Russia and China.
Moscow and Beijing see Washington as an increasingly hostile coalition of authoritarian nuclear powers.
US-China discussions in Rome were intended to test the depth of China’s commitment to Russia as it struggles to conquer Ukraine, with bomb-damaged buildings and millions of refugees terrifyingly fleeing the world. Were.
Since the start of the war, China has refused to condemn Putin’s actions – or even describe the invasion as war.
Instead, as recently as last week Beijing called the partnership between the two countries “rock-solid”.
