The EU asks China to leave the equidistance before Russia but Beijing remains undefined

The The European Union asked China this Friday abandon its “equidistance” in the face of the war in Ukraine and use your influence on Russia to stop the aggressionduring the videoconference summit held this Friday, in which Beijing did not clarify the role it is going to play as a superpower.

The summit was held almost two months after the meeting that the Chinese president, Xi Jinpingand its Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putinheld in Beijing during the opening of the Winter Olympics, in which both leaders committed to strengthen their ties and criticized NATO’s expansion policy.

For this reason, Brussels told China that if it does not support the sanctions that the West has imposed against Russia, “at least not interfere” in themnoted Von der Leyen, referring to the possibility that Beijing will help the Kremlin to circumvent them.

China has been ambiguous, as it has been since Russia invaded Ukraine. Europe has a lot at stake in this conflict, but China is also in an embarrassingly equidistant position. It is in China’s interest that the war in Ukraine stop, especially because of its trade relations with the European Union and the United States. In the video that accompanies this text, the journalist Adrián Foncillas, correspondent in Beijing, believes that “China is not going to opt for one side or the other because that goes against its foreign policy, but against its interests and geopolitics”.
