The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs has published its plan to resolve the issue of war in Ukraine. The program consists of 12 points and is called "China's position on the political settlement of the Ukrainian crisis." It looks like this.
- Respect for the sovereignty of all countries. International law must be strictly observed. Its equal and uniform application should also be encouraged and double standards should be rejected.
- Rejection of the Cold War mentality. "The security of the country should not be ensured at the expense of others," and military blocs should not be strengthened and expanded. All parties to the conflict must stop pursuing their own security interests at the expense of the security of others.
- Cessation of hostilities. “Conflicts and wars do no one any good. All parties must remain rational and exercise restraint."
- Resumption of peace talks. Dialogue is the only working solution to the Ukrainian crisis.
- Resolution of the humanitarian crisis. It is necessary by all means to contribute to the easing of the humanitarian crisis. The parties must follow the principles of neutrality and impartiality, and humanitarian issues must not be politicized.
- Protection of civilians and prisoners of war. The parties must strictly observe international humanitarian law. China supports the exchange of prisoners of war between Russia and Ukraine.
- Ensuring the safety of nuclear power plants. China opposes attacks on nuclear power plants and supports the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in its promotion of security.
- Reduction of strategic risks. Nuclear weapons must not be used and nuclear wars must not be waged.
- Promoting the export of grain. All parties need to implement the Black Sea Grain Initiative fully, effectively and in a balanced way and support the UN, which plays an important role in it.
- Ending unilateral sanctions. Unilateral sanctions and maximum pressure do not solve problems, they only create new ones.
- Maintaining the stability of production and supply chains. All parties must support the existing world economic system and oppose its use as a political tool or weapon.
- Promoting post-conflict reconstruction. The international community must support the restoration of the territories destroyed during the war. China is also ready to help.
Despite the fact that in its program China calls for an end to the war, in fact it contributes to its continuation. Earlier, the Wall Street Journal, citing Russian customs documents , wrote that China, bypassing sanctions, supplies Russia with navigation equipment, radio signal jamming technologies and spare parts for fighter jets.
