“It is the unprecedented high level of partnership between the two countries that let me decide to choose China as the first country to visit after I was officially served as the Russian Federal President.” On the eve of the visit, Putin said in an interview with Xinhua News Agency.

The China -Russia United statement emphasizes the affirmation of the principles of persuasion and talks on the Russian and Ukraine war issues and a series of initiative.Obviously, this is a common standpoint of China and Russia.Feng Shaolei, director of the Russian Research Center of East China Normal University, analyzed the surging news (www.thepaper.cn), saying thatThis affirmation not only contains the statements that have not been able to fight nuclear war and nuclear wars in the meeting of the Chinese and German leaders; logically, it should also be included in the proposal of the Sino -French leader on the suspension of the Paris Olympics.French President Macron is a high -profile leader of Western countries that dispatched ground units to Ukraine, but also advocated political resolution of Russia and Ukraine.China and French politicians jointly advocate the Olympic Games, which is the strong support for the promotion and initiative of the war.

The key is how to further improve the quality of bilateral economic and trade cooperation.This requires the pain points and difficulties of the current cooperation between the two parties to better adapt to the new international economic, trade, finance and political pattern.
In the statement of the China -Russia head talk about the economic and trade relations, it also revealed the necessity of optimizing the structure of cooperation and indicating the key areas that need to be paid attention to.The Supreme Leader met with Putin and said that the two sides “adhere to the new pattern of mutual benefit and mutual benefit of cooperation with win -win cooperation and win -win cooperation.”Establish an basic scientific research platform network, continue to release the potential of cooperation in frontier fields, strengthen ports and transportation and logistics cooperation, and maintain the stable supply chain of the global industrial chain. “

During the visit, the Ukrainian issue was also the focus of China and the European party. Chinese leaders reiterated China’s fair position on this issue. The European side also expressed the hope that China would continue to play a constructive role in resolving the Ukrainian crisis.It is self -evident that the European party must pay special attention to Putin’s visit to China.Zhao Long believes that “the problem is that Europe failed to correctly understand the essence of Sino -Russian relations. In the current geopolitical environment, it is easy to cause the thinking of the ‘Cold War’ period to oppose Sino -Russian relations and China -Europe relations.”
In a joint statement, both China and Russia pointed out that the current Military Political Alliance model of China -Russia relations surpassed the Cold War period has the nature of non -alliance, non -confrontation, and no third parties.The two sides emphasized that “the development of a comprehensive strategic collaboration partnership in China and Russia in the new era is in line with the fundamental interests of the two countries and the two countries. It is not an authority, it is not affected by a moment, and has strong endogenous motivation and independent value.”
Putin said in an interview with Xinhua News Agency before the trip that we hope to resolve this conflict through comprehensive, sustainable, and fairly through peaceful means.We are open -minded on the Ukrainian issue, but these negotiations must take into account the interests of all countries involved in this conflict, including our interests.

As a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council and a responsible country, China is willing to be with the French side to take the Paris Olympic Games as an opportunity.Macron also thanked the Supreme Leader for supporting this initiative.
Talking about the political solution of the Ukrainian issue, Zhao Long analyzed that although the communication at the head of the head of state helps condense consensus and reduce misunderstandings, from the actual perspective, although the parties have expressed their can be negotiated, the other party cannot set up the other party that cannotThe prerequisite for acceptance of peace talks, the substantial negotiation between the directly recovery conflict is still difficult.
On May 17, Ukrainian President Zelezki expressed different views on the Olympic ceasefire in an interview with Agence France -Presse, saying that it would only help Russia to take the opportunity to transfer the army and equipment into the Ukrainian territory.Facing the Paris Olympic Games more than two months later, Feng Shaolei believes that “although the temporary off -war during the Olympic Games requires cooperation with all parties, the Russian side highly evaluates the expression of Chinese persuasion and hard work.expect.”
