China and France work toward a political solution in Ukraine, APA reports citing Bloomberg.
China's top diplomat Wang Yi and President Emmanuel Macron’s foreign policy adviser, Emmanuel Bonne had phone conversation.
It was noted that the sides agreed to create conditions to begin the political settlement process of conflict in Ukraine.
Macron had earlier tasked Bonne to work with Wang to establish a framework that could be used as a basis for future negotiations.
French efforts to work with China over a resolution in Ukraine came under scrutiny again in April after Beijing’s envoy to the country dismissed the sovereignty of some ex-Soviet states.
