China responds to Zelensky's statements on the peace summit in Switzerland

China has never "fanned or stoked the flames" of the Russian-Ukrainian war. At the same time, China's position on the peace conference in Switzerland is very "open and transparent."

This was stated by Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Mao Ning at a briefing on Monday, June 3, when asked about Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's statements about attempts to disrupt the Peace Summit. She was quoted by The Guardian.

The day before, Zelensky accused China of supporting Russia's efforts to deter leaders from participating in the Peace Summit and called China "a tool in Putin's hands."

"Unfortunately, Russia, using Chinese influence in the region, including Chinese diplomats, is doing everything to disrupt the peace summit. Unfortunately, such a large, independent, powerful country as China is a tool in Putin's hands," Zelensky said.

In turn, Mao Ning said on Monday that China attaches great importance to its relations with Ukraine and remains its largest trading partner. She also added that Beijing's position on the peace conference is very "open and transparent."

This position was voiced by the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs on May 31. The ministry said that China would not attend the peace summit in Switzerland, as Beijing believes that both Ukraine and Russia should take part in such an event.

"We believe we can achieve understanding and support from all parties," Mao emphasized.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky criticized Beijing's position on the Peace Summit in Singapore. According to the head of state, Beijing is working to prevent other countries from attending this conference.

Earlier, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg also said that by cooperating with Russia, China is fueling a war in Europe. He warned that Beijing's position could lead to a loss of relations with Western countries.
