Chinese President Xi Jinping had a virtual summit with French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz on Tuesday in Beijing, supporting France and Germany in promoting a balanced, effective and sustainable European security framework for the interests and lasting security of Europe. 

Xi emphasized the need to jointly support the peace talks between Russia and Ukraine, while encouraging the two sides to maintain the momentum of negotiations and calling for maximum restraint to prevent a massive humanitarian crisis.

Experts said that the latest talks between Chinese and European leaders showed that China and Europe share similar stances and interests on the Ukraine situation, signaling that the two sides can effectively coordinate and cooperate on solving the Ukraine crisis and injecting new hope for an endgame of this crisis. As China also shares strategic mutual trust with Russia, it is expected to play a constructive role in helping tackle the current crisis, experts said.
