Chinese leader Xi Jinping said at a meeting with Polish President Andrzej Duda in Beijing that China would seek to resolve the "crisis in Ukraine" in its own way, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China.

"Xi Jinping emphasized that China's position on the "Ukrainian crisis" is to promote peace negotiations and a political settlement," the statement said.

In Xi Jinping's view, efforts must now be made to prevent the expansion and intensification of the conflict, reduce tensions, and create conditions for peace talks.

"China is ready to continue playing a constructive role in the political settlement of the crisis in Ukraine in its own way and supports all efforts that contribute to the peaceful solution of the crisis and the construction of an effective and sustainable European security architecture," the Chinese leader noted.

At the same time, he added that Beijing opposes other countries' criticism of its "normal trade" with Russia, stating that the aim is to discredit China.

Polish President Andrzej Duda arrived in China on Saturday, June 22. During the visit, he met with Chinese leader Xi Jinping to discuss Russia's war against Ukraine, among other topics.
