China has blamed the protraction and escalation of the Russia-Ukraine war which started in February 2022, on what it called an “invisible hand”.
This was made known by Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang, who spoke on the sidelines of annual session of the National People’s Congress.
Speaking about the protracted war, Qin called for the resumption of peace talks as soon as possible and also the legitimate security of the parties involved.
He however described the conflict as “an eruption of the problems built up in a security governance of Europe”.
Also seeing that attempts at peace talks have always been thwarted, Qin claimed that it has a complicated history and complicated reasons.
“There seems to be an invisible hand, pushing for the protraction and escalation of the conflict and using the Ukraine crisis to serve certain geopolitical agenda.”
The minister further warned, saying that the crisis will worsen unless hostilities ceased and a political resolution process is started.
China has continuously refuted accusations of providing Russia, her ally, with weapons during the conflict. Meanwhile, Moscow’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine has not received condemnation from the Asian powerhouse.
