US President Joe Biden considered that the plan proposed by China to resolve the conflict in Ukraine is beneficial only to Russia.
“Putin applauds this (the plan),” Biden said in an interview with ABC. “What good is it?”
He added: “I did not see anything in this plan that would indicate that its implementation could be beneficial to any party other than Russia.”
The US president called the idea that China would negotiate with Ukraine to end a “totally unjust war” as “illogical.”
It is noteworthy that Russian President Vladimir Putin has not yet commented on the Chinese initiative, which consists of 12 points.
And the Chinese Foreign Ministry today, on Friday, published a document consisting of 12 points, which presents Beijing’s position on the political settlement of the Ukrainian crisis. The document calls for an early cessation of hostilities and the start of peace talks between Russia and Ukraine.
The document emphasized a number of principles, including the need to abandon the Cold War mentality, the inadmissibility of achieving national security at the expense of the security of other countries, ensuring regional security by strengthening or even expanding military blocs, stressing that the legitimate security interests and concerns of all countries should be seriously take into account and reject double standards.
