European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs Josep Borrell on Sunday said the EU will consider China's proposals for resolving the conflict in Ukraine, despite already knowing that the 12-point agenda is missing some key aspects for achieving peace, APA reports citing Teletrader.
"It is not really a peace plan and mostly reiterates well-known Chinese positions, some of which we share while important ones are missing," Borrell said about the document. "Of course, we will analyze 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," he added.
On Friday, the Chinese Foreign Ministry published a position paper that calles for peace negotiations while pleading with all parties to prevent nuclear escalation. Kiev rejected the proposal, stressing that the end of the conflict must include Russian withdrawal from Ukraine.
