China And Brazil Issue Joint Statement On Peace In Ukraine

China And Brazil Issue Joint Statement On Peace In Ukraine

There is an important thing about Russia.

On May 23, the governments of Brazil and China issued a joint statement on resolving the war between Russia and Ukraine, advocating political negotiations to achieve peace. In particular, they believe that the conference should be held exclusively with the participation of Russia.

CNN Brasil reported.

Thus, the chief adviser to the President of Brazil Celso Amorim met on May 23 in Beijing with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of China Wang Yi, as stated in the statement of the Government of Brazil, in search of a "policy of solving the problem" regarding the so-called 'crisis' in Ukraine and de-escalation of the situation.

Among the common arrangements cited by China and Brazil is that they both “support an international peace conference that is recognized by both Russia and Ukraine, with the equal participation of all relevant parties, in addition to a fair discussion of all peace plans.”

According to the press service of Amorim, Brazil and China should now "involve friendly countries in the arrangement" of the meeting.

Other "general arrangements" largely reproduce what Chinese diplomacy defended at the meetings of its special representative in the negotiations on the war in Ukraine. For example, the refusal to use weapons of mass destruction and attacks on nuclear power plants.

In particular, Brazil and China, in a joint communiqué, believe that three principles must be adhered to to de-escalate the conflict:

non-expansion of the battlefield;

prevention of escalation of hostilities;

prevention of escalation of the situation by at least one of the parties.

Concluding the topic of war, China and Brazil advocate avoiding, in general, according to the published document, "the division of the world into isolated political or economic groups." This, as noted, is part of the efforts of China and Brazil to prevent a new Cold War.

According to the statement, both countries are calling for mobilization to “strengthen international cooperation” in sectors such as energy, trade and food security. Also “the security of critical infrastructure, including pipelines and underwater optical cables, to protect the stability of global industrial and supply chains.”
