U.S. And The EU Dismiss CCP’s So-called Ukraine Peace Proposal

On February 24th, it was reported that U.S. and European officials expressed deep distrust of the Chinese Communist Party’s “Ukraine peace proposal” and urged the world not to get distracted from the imminent threat of Communist China supplying lethal weapons to Russia. On the first anniversary of the outbreak of the war between Russia and Ukraine, the CCP’s 12-point position on the political settlement of the Ukraine crisis asserts vague support for “sovereignty,” “ceasing hostilities,” and “resuming peace talks,” without specific proposals on achieving those goals.

In this proposal, however, there is no mention of Russia as the aggressor in the conflict, nor is there a demand for Putin to stop the war. Instead, it reiterates Communist China’s position on the war, linking it to the Kremlin’s “legitimate security concerns.” In response, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in an interview that “China’s been trying to have it both ways — it’s on the one hand trying to present itself publicly as neutral and seeking peace, while at the same time it is talking up Russia’s false narrative about the war,” Blinken said. “There are 12 points in the CCP’s plan. If they were serious about the first one, sovereignty, then this war could end tomorrow.”

The proposal comes after Blinken warned that Communist China is considering providing lethal weaponry to Moscow against Ukraine. World leaders are coming out to counter the proposal. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said Beijing’s peace proposal doesn’t have much credibility, and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said the EU would not consider the proposal unless the CCP took its position. Earlier, Beijing abstained from voting on a UN resolution demanding Russia’s immediate and unconditional withdrawal of its troops from Ukraine.
