The foreign ministers of China and Russia have met in China, prior to a meeting of government representatives from countries which border Afghanistan.

According to China’s state media, China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that relations between the two countries have withstood new tests presented by a changing international situation.

Wang said China was ready to take their relationship “into a new era” and “to a higher level”.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov briefed his Chinese counterpart on the “special military operation” in Ukraine, as Moscow has repeatedly described its invasion of the country.

Wang said China had “always stood on the right side of history”, adding that the Ukraine “issue” had “a complex history” and claimed it was “the result of a long-standing European security conflict”.

Wang also said China supported the efforts being made by Russia, and all parties, to “prevent a large-scale humanitarian crisis”.

China has repeatedly refused to criticise Russia for its invasion of Ukraine.
