German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has met with Chinese President Xi Jinping to discuss, among other things, Russia’s war against Ukraine, the German newspaper Spiegel reported on Nov. 4.

"We come together at a time of great tension,” Scholz said.

“In particular, I want to highlight the Russian war against Ukraine, which poses many problems for our rules-based world order.”

According to him, as influential powers, "China and Germany should work together in times of change and chaos to make more contributions to world peace and development.”
