Russian President Vladimir Putin hosts Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi

Saint Petersburg (AFP) – Russian President Vladimir Putin meets China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi for talks in Saint Petersburg. Wang is on a four-day visit to Russia, the latest of a series of high-level contacts between Moscow and Beijing. Since the start of its offensive in Ukraine, Moscow has been increasingly isolated and has sought to deepen ties with China. While offering Moscow a vital diplomatic and financial lifeline, Beijing has maintained a neutral position in the Ukraine conflict.
