China calls for political settlement to Ukraine crisis at early date: envoy

China's deputy permanent representative to the United Nations Geng Shuang on Monday called for the political settlement to the Ukraine crisis at an early date at a Security Council meeting on the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict.

The Ukraine crisis persists, marked by a continuous influx of weaponry and ammunition onto the battlefield, accompanied by an expansion in their variety and scope. This escalation has led to rising lethality and casualty rates, with greater risks of loss and proliferation, which has caused concern among people, Geng said.

While weapons may bring about the end of wars, they alone cannot secure lasting peace. Though the origins of conflicts may differ, they ultimately must find solutions through diplomatic negotiations, he said.

China calls on all relevant parties to prioritize peace and humanitarian crisis, direct their resources and endeavors towards diplomatic efforts aimed at stopping the fighting, and jointly promote a political solution to the Ukrainian crisis at an early date, according to the Chinese envoy.

"Here, I reiterate our call on the parties to the conflict to demonstrate political will, meet each other halfway, start peace talks at an early date and stop the fighting. We call on the international community to create conditions and provide assistance for it. China is ready to continuously make unremitting efforts and play a constructive role in promoting a political solution to the Ukrainian issue at an early date," said Geng at the meeting.

We welcome more countries to support and endorse the six common understandings," he said.
