Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in a conversation with EU Head of Diplomacy Josep Borrell on the sides of the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN) in New York  ;said that Beijing would in no case aggravate the conflict in Ukraine, but at the same time did not want to watch it from the sidelines. This was reported by Reuters.

Wang Yi stressed that in the confrontation between Russia and Ukraine, there is a tendency to expand and drag out, and the negative impact of the conflict is becoming more serious. The minister claims that the main priorities in this situation are a ceasefire and a peaceful settlement.

The diplomat added that China “will not be an indifferent observer, and even more so will not add fuel to the fire, but will continue to play its own role".

Wang Yi added that PRC supports the European Union and the leading EU states in continuing active mediation and making every effort to achieve peace.

Previously, BAGNET reported that NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg urged China to use its influence" to cease hostilities in Ukraine.
