Polish President Andrzej Duda and Chinese President Xi Jinping discussed the war in Ukraine during a meeting in Beijing. The Polish leader emphasized that he hopes China will help find a solution for peace in Ukraine.

In his opinion, Beijing should strive for peace based on the principles of international law. Duda's words were quoted by his press service at the briefing.

The Polish president said he presented the Chinese leader with the Polish point of view on the security situation in Europe and the world. He also expressed hope that China, as a great power and a member of the UN Security Council, would support efforts to peacefully end the war started by Russia in Ukraine.

But, as Duda emphasized, first and foremost, the end of the war should be in line with the principles of international law.

According to him, Xi Jinping emphasized in the conversation that China seeks peace and peaceful development of the situation in Europe.

"Today, President Xi Jinping has repeatedly emphasized that China seeks peace because China is a country that seeks peaceful development. Xi Jinping repeatedly emphasized this in our conversation today. I have outlined our situation and our opinion in detail. And I can say that we were listened to. I don't want to talk here about the details of our face-to-face conversation," the Polish president said.

He emphasized that he had repeatedly emphasized that Warsaw's position is that no one has the right to change the borders of states.

"I have emphasized several times here today that we stand on the position of unchanging borders, that borders cannot be changed by force, neither in Europe nor in any other part of the world. The sovereignty and independence of states must be respected," Duda said.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, earlier, US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan suggested that China's absence at the peace summit in Switzerland was due to a request from Russian dictator Vladimir Putin. According to him, this is China's true position on the war in Ukraine.

Earlier, China responded to Volodymyr Zelensky's accusations of attempts to disrupt the Peace Summit. Beijing said that China has never "fanned or stoked the flames" of the Russian-Ukrainian war.
