Key talking points:

💬 President Xi Jinping is undoubtedly is one of the recognized world leaders. He is a leader who assesses the situation, analyzes it and peers into the future.

🇷🇺🤝🇨🇳 Relations between Russia and China <…> have not been shaped to suite the current global environment; nor are they the result of a short-term political opportunism. <…> Not to mention the role that Russian-Chinese relations play in ensuring stability in the world. Relation between Russia and China are a fundamental factor.

📈 In the previous period, we had 32 percent growth in trade, which is a very good one. There is every reason to believe that we will reach $200 billion mark by the end of the year.

• The countries of the Eurasian Economic Union have already secured $24 billion in investments by working together on the Belt and Road Initiative. But this volume is growing because the number of mutually beneficial projects is increasing.

☝️ We proceed from the fact that all people are equal, all people have the same rights; the rights and freedoms of one country and one nation end where the rights and freedoms of another person of an entire state appear. This is the way in which a multipolar world should be evolving gradually.

• Hostilities in Ukraine did not start with our special military operation, but way before – in 2014.

❗️ As for what needs to be done and how it needs to be done in order to end the conflict by peaceful means: we have never been against this. <…> So if the Ukrainian side is willing to, I guess the first thing to do is to revoke the decree and express the readiness for the negotiations.
