BREAKING WORLD WAR III NEWS: PRESIDENT XI JINPING ISSUES RARE PUBLIC REBUKE TO PRESIDENT PUTIN TELLING HIM NOT TO USE NUCLEAR WEAPONS IN UKRAINE AND AT THE SAME TIME URGES EUROPEAN LEADERS TO PRESS FOR PEACE TALKS AND BRING AN END TO THE FIGHTING.
Daniel Whyte III of G.L.S. International, says, it is good that President Xi Jinping is telling Putin not to use nuclear weapons in Ukraine and is urging the European Union to push for peace talks between Russia and Ukraine so that the unnecessary killing can end because this war is hurting the lives of innocent people. Further, it is the prayer of Daniel Whyte III that Taiwan and China would have peace talks before a war breaks out, so that they can have a peaceful resolution to their family squabble before one shot is fired and before one person dies. Jesus Christ said, “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”
Xi Jinping has issued a direct warning to Putin not to use nukes in Ukraine in China’s bluntest rebuke yet to the Kremlin.
Xi also urged German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, who was visiting Beijing, to push for peace talks – saying the international community should ‘create conditions for the resumption of negotiations (and) oppose the use or threat of nuclear weapons.’
Scholz, the first Western leader to visit Beijing since Xi was given his third term as leader, urged Xi to put pressure on Putin to end attacks which have killed civilians and destroyed cities.
‘President Xi and I agree: nuclear threats are irresponsible and incendiary,’ Scholz said after the meeting. ‘By using nuclear weapons, Russia would be crossing a line that the community of states has drawn together.’
Though Xi stopped short of criticising Putin directly, asking Russia to withdraw its troops, or blaming Moscow for the war – his comments none-the-less mark the biggest public rebuke yet delivered to the Kremlin.
Just before Putin ordered his troops into Ukraine on February 24, the two leaders put out a join statement hailing a new era of boundless cooperation and friendship.
In the early days of the war, China’s foreign ministry repeated Russian talking points about NATO expansionism, the West’s ‘Cold War mindset’, and castigated journalists for using the words ‘war’ or ‘invasion’.
But as Moscow’s forces have been mauled on the battlefield China’s tone has changed. At a summit in Uzbekistan in September, Putin was forced to publicly acknowledge that Xi had ‘questions and concerns’ after meeting with him.
Li Keqiang, China’s outgoing premiere who also took part in the talks with Scholz, also said the world ‘cannot afford any further escalation’ in Ukraine.
It comes after Putin warned the West that he is ready to use ‘all means’ to defend occupied territories in Ukraine, adding that he is ‘not bluffing’.
‘[We] hope the crisis ends soon,’ Li said.
