Chinese peace plandoes not distinguish aggressor from victim – Josep Borrell

Josep Borrell, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, has said that China's proposals to end the Russian war in Ukraine are not a "peace plan" and put the aggressor and the victim on the same level.

"China introduced its ‘position paper’ on a political settlement. It is not really a peace plan and mostly reiterates well-known Chinese positions, some of which we share while important ones are missing. Of course, we will analyse it, but it is already clear that the key problem is that it does not really distinguish aggressor from the victim, putting the parties at an equal level," Borrell wrote.


He added that it is necessary to achieve peace based on the resolution of the UN General Assembly and President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s peace plan.

"The Russian war and tensions between China and the US are tearing at the fabric of what we often refer to as the ‘rules-based international order’. But equally, a vast major of countries still look to the UN to provide solutions," Borrell wrote.

Earlier, US President Joe Biden rejected China's proposals to end the war in Ukraine, suggesting that their implementation would only benefit Russia.
