First of all, I dont believe this war will end, until Russia wins the war and simply dictates conditions. Zelensky will never
However China has made another push for peace talks:https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2023/9/2 ... kraine-war
China has tried to position itself as a peacemaker and neutral arbiter in the conflict, although it has refused to condemn Moscow over the invasion.
If they would condemn Moscow over the invasion, they would follow western propaganda and thus wouldnt be accepted as arbiter by Russia, thus the very first sentence of this article is already completely idiotic. Good start.
In February, on the first anniversary of the war, it released a position paper on how to bring about an end to the fighting, but the proposals received a lukewarm response in Moscow and Kyiv.
Another idiotic statement.
If you follow the link given: https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2023/3/2 ... ine-crisis
You'll find that China has made no such position paper at all, but that the text in question proposes very general principles of conduct between countries.
Not limited to the ukraine conflict and not even actually limited to war times.
Something a position paper could be based on, sure, but not a position paper on how to do peace in Ukraine specifically at all.
I am also not aware of any negative reaction from the russians to this paper. Which would be really unusual and would be big news since the west only waits for any signs that Russia and China dont like each other. Since the west almost feverishly fantasizes about such differences at every occasion, such a split would have been big news.
I AM aware that the west doesnt actually like this paper at all, since it for example proposes the abandonment of unilateral sanctions. All of them. That would include for example the sanctions on Cuba and Venezuela.
China, one of five permanent members of the UN Security Council, wants to “continue playing a constructive role”, Han added. He did not elaborate.
What is there to "elaborate" ? He is just now making another push for peace negotiations ??
“As the largest developing country, China is a natural member of the Global South. It breathes the same breath with other developing countries and shares the same future with them,” Han said.
China, thanks to its massive population, is literally the most powerful industrialized country on the whole planet.
They might help other developing countries to walk the path that China has walked, and they might not have finished the path to their own full industrialization just yet, but still calling them a developing country themselves is a massive stretch nowadays.
They are literally the next, third nuclear superpower, despite their military spending at a relatively moderate 1.6% of GDP (2.2% world average, 3.5% USA, 4.1% Russia). They have their very own space program and their very own space station. Thanks to their geographic location, they have the ideal position to start rockets, too, with the vast space of the pacific ocean for failing missles to land on with no damage to anyone.
However this statement is another confirmation that China indeed wants to help other developing nations to industialize, too. Something the west has always promised, but never fulfilled.
