Russia and China pledge friendship, denounce the West
By Arsenio Toledo // Mar 23, 2023

Chinese President Xi Jinping promised Russian President Vladimir Putin that significant changes are coming at the conclusion of the latter's state visit that had both nations denouncing the United States and the West.

This occurred at the end of Xi and Putin's three-day meeting in Moscow, with the Chinese leader informing his Russian counterpart that their nations have become the main drivers of geopolitical change around the world.

"Right now, there are changes – the likes of which we haven't seen for 100 years – and we are the ones driving these changes together," Xi told Putin through a translator as he and the Russian president stood at the door of the Kremlin saying their goodbyes.

"Please take care, dear friend," Xi said, shaking Putin's hand.

Before this ominous departure, Putin and Xi pledged to strengthen their special "no limits" friendship. They also jointly denounced the U.S. and the West as they strive to create an alternative power structure to American attempts to create a "unipolar world" controlled by Washington, D.C.

"We are working in solidarity on the formation of a more just and democratic multipolar world order, which should be based on the central role of the United Nations, its Security Council, international law, the purposes and principles of the UN Charter," said Putin.

The two nations also discussed their "serious concerns" about American nuclear weapons and bio-military activities. In a statement signed by Xi and Putin, they requested that the U.S. clarifies its position regarding the use of nuclear and biological weapons, step up efforts to destroy chemical weapons stashes and refrain from actions that violate the Biological Weapons Convention.

Washington dismissive of brewing Moscow-Beijing alliance

Commenting on the meeting between Xi and Putin, the White House said China is not impartial to Russia's special military operation in Ukraine. Washington is urging Beijing to pressure Moscow into withdrawing from Ukraine's internationally recognized borders to end Europe's deadliest conflict since World War II.

The U.S. has also expressed disdain over China's peace proposal for the conflict in Ukraine, claiming that such a ceasefire would lock in Russian territorial gains in eastern and southern Ukraine and give the Russian Armed Forces too much leverage over Kyiv.

China has not responded to the White House's entreaties. But as Xi left Moscow, Ukraine faced a new series of Russian drone strikes that damaged military infrastructure across the country.

"The world should not be fooled by any tactical move by Russia, supported by China or any other country, to freeze the war on its own terms," claimed Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

Putin, meanwhile, said in a joint press conference near the end of Xi's state visit at the Kremlin that Beijing's peace plan "correlates to the point of view of the Russian Federation."
