War in Ukraine: China’s position
Regarding the war in Ukraine, he said that “China did not create this crisis, is not involved in this and did not supply weapons to either side,” he said.
“China always makes its own judgments and makes independent decisions based on benefits,” Qin said. “Between war and peace, we chose peace; between sanctions and dialogue, we chose dialogue; between fanning the flames and lowering the temperature, we chose the latter,” he explained.
Beijing positions itself as a peacemaker in the war in Ukraine, but at the same time avoids the term “invasion”, diplomatic and economic efforts are aimed at supporting Moscow.

Qin called it “absurd” when “high-ranking US officials” interfere in the conflict over Taiwan, which he considers “an internal matter of the Chinese people.”
“No other country has the right to do so,” he explained his position.
The ruling Communist Party of the People’s Republic of China refers to Taiwan as part of its territory, despite the fact that democratic Taiwan has never been part of the PRC. Xi Jinping has repeatedly refused to rule out a possible military scenario for “unifying” the island with mainland China.
“We will continue to work sincerely and make every possible effort for peaceful unification. At the same time, we reserve the right to take all necessary measures,” the diplomat said.
Earlier, Focus reported that China was unhappy with the Kremlin due to the fact that discussions of the supply of Chinese weapons to Russia were leaked to the press. The Economist wrote about the talks between China and Russia on March 3.
Recall that the war in Ukraine makes it easier for the United States to isolate China “in its backyard,” CNN reported on March 6.
