“Ukrainians are resisting, and we are helping them. Now is not time for negotiations”
French President Emmanuel Macron said that both China and France considered it to be too early for peace talks on Russia’s war against Ukraine as “today, the time is military”.
“Ukrainians are resisting, and we are helping them. The time is not for negotiations, even if we prepare them, we have to set milestones,” Macron said in an interview with Les Echos, three days after his meeting with Chinese president Xi Jinping.
Macron added that amid war-related threats, France and China should uphold the principles of the UN Charter, humanitarian law and the protection of children, as well as have a “clear reminder” of nuclear energy security following Russia’s decision to place nuclear weapons in Belarus, Kyiv Independent reports.
