China could play a role in supporting Ukraine and helping to end the war, according to the Voice of America.

John Kirby, Former Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs, said on a board Air Force One on Tuesday that US President Joe Biden will discuss the war in Ukraine during his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Kirby mentioned that the discussion hasn't occurred yet, and he is hesitant to anticipate it. He believes the conversation will likely cover the situation in Ukraine, with the president reaffirming the commitment to support Ukraine against Russian aggression.

Kirby also noted that the United States would "welcome" opportunities for China to be of assistance to Israel.
