BEIJING, April 14, 22:27 /ITAR-TASS/. China has pledged to play a constructive role in settling the Ukraine crisis.
China has always held an objective, fair and responsible stance on the situation in Ukraine, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told his German opposite number Frank-Walter Steinmeier at a meeting on Monday. He said China had made three proposals as soon as the Ukraine crisis had started: to launch an international coordination mechanism and discuss all possible options of a political settlement, including the achievement of consensus.
“During this process the sides should refrain from any actions that may aggravate the situation,” the Chinese foreign minister said.
He added the idea of the holding four-sided consultations in Geneva involving the United States, Russia, the EU and Ukraine was in line with the Chinese initiative.
“China is pleased to see that it is being implemented,” Wang Yi stressed.
