Media reports suggest Chinese President Xi Jinping may visit Russia and speak with the Ukrainian president.
Xi could visit Putin, speak to Zelenskiy ‘next week’
Chinese President Xi Jinping could wade deeper than before into Ukraine diplomacy as soon as next week, staging both his first trip to Russia and his first talks with Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskiy since the Russian invasion.
Several sources familiar with the plans told Reuters Xi could visit Moscow next week, an earlier than expected trip in response to a long-standing invitation from President Vladimir Putin.
His plans to also hold a video conference with Zelenskiy were reported by the Wall Street Journal, citing sources, which Reuters was not immediately able to confirm independently.
The Chinese foreign ministry did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
