The Special Representative of the Chinese Government on Eurasian Affairs Li Hui will visit Ukraine, Poland, France, Germany and Russia from May 15 to communicate with all parties on a political solution of the Ukraine crisis, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Friday.
Since the start of the Ukraine crisis, China has always upheld an objective and impartial stance, and actively promoted talks and negotiations for peace, said Wang Wenbin, the ministry's spokesperson.
Wang noted the four points about what must be done, four things the international community must do together and three observations of the crisis put forward by Chinese President Xi Jinping are the fundamental principles for China to follow in addressing the crisis.
On that basis, China released a paper stating its position on the political settlement of the Ukraine crisis, which absorbs the reasonable concerns of all parties and has been widely understood and recognized by the international community, he said.
This visit is another manifestation of China's commitment to facilitating talks for peace, Wang said, adding that it demonstrates that China always stands on the side of peace.
Currently, the crisis is still escalating and the spillover effect continues to appear, Wang noted, adding that the international community is increasingly calling for a ceasefire and the easing of the situation.
China is willing to continue to play a constructive role and build more international consensus in areas such as facilitating peace talks and de-escalating the situation, aimed at making Chinese contributions to promoting the political settlement of the Ukraine crisis, he said.
