Biden says China negotiating Russia-Ukraine peace deal ‘not rational’

In a new interview, President Biden said a China-brokered peace plan between Russia and Ukraine was “not rational,” pointing out that the proposed plan would only benefit Russia.

In an interview published Friday, ABC News’ David Muir asked Biden what he thought of China’s peace proposal, which Russian President Vladimir Putin applauded last week.

“I think you answered the question. Putin is applauding. I’m not joking. I’m very serious,” Biden told Muir. I haven’t seen any plans that show that there is anything that would benefit anyone other than.”

“The idea that China is trying to negotiate the outcome of a war that is totally unjust for Ukraine is simply not rational,” he continued.

China called for a ceasefire in the war between Ukraine and Russia on Thursday, outlining a 12-point plan to negotiate peace. The plan includes ending hostilities, resuming peace talks and addressing the humanitarian crisis caused by the war.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy showed some openness to China’s proposals at a press conference on Friday, saying it was “not bad” for China to discuss Ukraine. Associated Press report. However, he also said he disagrees with some of the plan’s proposals but would like to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken said earlier this month that China was “strongly considering” sending “lethal aid” to Russia in its war with Ukraine. The Pentagon warned this week that China would face “consequences” if it provided weapons to Moscow.

Biden visited Ukraine last week to mark the one-year anniversary of the Russian invasion. He then made statements in Poland, promising that the United States and other Western allies would continue to support Ukraine until the end of the war.
