Xi Jinping Warns Against Expanding Military Ties: Chinese President Xi Jinping has warned against expanding military ties during a speech ahead of a virtual summit with top leaders of Russia, India, Brazil and South Africa. . This time China is hosting the meeting of the influential club of emerging economies of BRICS, which accounts for more than 40 per cent of the global population and nearly a quarter of the world’s GDP.
Three members of the BRICS including China, India and South Africa abstained from voting on a UN resolution condemning Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Chinese President Xi Jinping warned the BRICS business forum against expanding military alliances amid the Ukraine crisis and seeking its own security at the cost of other countries’ security.
How is Jinping’s relationship with Putin?
China and India have strong military ties with Russia and buy large amounts of its oil and gas. Last week, Xi Jinping assured his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin that China would support Moscow’s core interests in sovereignty and security. At the same time, America says that this is the wrong side of China. Not one of the few African countries with diplomatic influence outside the continent, including South Africa, has condemned the Russian military action.
What did Xi Jinping say?
Chinese President Xi Jinping took a dig at the US and EU sanctions on Russia during a speech on Wednesday, saying these sanctions are like a double-edged sword. The BRICS summit is taking place when Russian troops have been continuously attacking Ukraine since February 24. Many cities of Ukraine have been destroyed in the Russian attack, while a large number of people have fled from here.
China and India’s relations with Russia
PM Modi will participate in virtual format on 23-24 June 2022 at the invitation of Chinese President Xi Jinping. Relations between China and India have been good with Russia. Amid the ongoing war in Ukraine, both China and India have increased crude oil imports from Russia, which has helped offset losses from reducing Russian energy purchases from Western countries. On the other hand, the leaders of the Group of Seven (G7) countries will meet in Germany next week to discuss how to proceed with sanctions against Russia.
