One of the topics of the conversation was probably the Chinese position paper on the Ukraine war.
Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock met her new Chinese colleague Qin Gang before the start of the working sessions at the G20 foreign ministers’ meeting of the leading economic powers in India.
Details about the content and results of the talks in the capital, New Delhi, were not initially known. However, it was expected that the Green politician Qin would address, among other things, the position paper published by China last Friday on the anniversary of Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine.
Among other things, China had called for a ceasefire and negotiations. Western diplomats and experts reacted to the Chinese paper with skepticism and disappointment, since the twelve-point document did not reveal any new initiative. In addition, China is considered a close ally of Russia and has never clearly condemned the invasion of Ukraine.
