China’s top diplomat, Wang Yi, has shared the key points of a proposed “peace plan” for the settlement of Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine, but Kyiv needs to study the details of the full text of the document, Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said on Feb. 21, during a joint press conference with EU High Representative for Foreign Policy Josep Borrell and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

“Yes, we had a meeting with China’s top diplomat Wang Yi, he shared with me the key points of China’s ‘peace plan’,” Kuleba explained.

“We look forward to getting the text, as this is not where you can jump to conclusions just by hearing what the plan is about. We need to find out all the details.”

As soon as Ukraine receives the document, it will be carefully studied and conclusions will be drawn, Kuleba added.

The head of the Foreign Ministry also emphasized that the “peace formula” proposed by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy remains a top priority.

He added that China’s focus, in the context of unprovoked Russian aggression against Ukraine, should be aimed at protecting the principle of territorial integrity of Ukraine.

Yi announced the Chinese plan for “the political settlement of the crisis in Ukraine” on Feb. 18. The Chinese government has promised to release the full text by the end of February. The Chinese diplomat insisted that the document will contain positions on the need to respect territorial integrity and sovereignty.

According to Bloomberg, China’s “peace plan” for Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine may include calls for an end to the supply of weapons to Ukrainian defenders.
