It was the first meeting between the two since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi met his Ukrainian counterpart Dimitro Kuleba on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, China’s foreign ministry said on Friday.

It was the first meeting between the two since Russia’s February invasion of Ukraine – although they have made two phone calls.

On Friday, Ukraine’s Moscow-held regions are voting to be part of Russia in a referendum that Kyiv and its allies have denounced as an illegal land grab.

Wang told Kuleba that “the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries should be respected … the legitimate security concerns of all countries should be taken seriously, and all efforts conducive to a peaceful resolution of the crisis should be supported.” ” The ministry said in a statement.

Beijing has refused to condemn Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, as President Xi Jinping pursues a closer strategic alliance with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin to counter the United States.

China has repeatedly called for a peaceful resolution of the conflict through dialogue, but has taken no action to facilitate such talks.

Wang also told Kuleba that “China has always been committed to promoting peace talks, never standing idly by, never adding fuel to the fire and never taking advantage of the situation for selfish reasons.” Is”.

China has always stood for peace and will continue to play a constructive role.

Kuleba confirmed the meeting on his Twitter account.

“My counterpart reaffirms China’s respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, as well as rejects the use of force as a means to resolve differences,” he wrote.

Beijing has held several high-level meetings with Moscow in recent months, including Wang’s meeting with Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov on Wednesday, on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

Xi held a high-profile meeting with Putin in Uzbekistan earlier this month during his first foreign trip since the outbreak of the pandemic.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Ukraine, and the two signed a comprehensive strategic partnership in 2013.
