Russia is big news right now in the midst of the Ukraine war. Russia has said it is ready for talks with Ukraine. However, Ukraine has not yet responded to Russia’s proposal. At the same time, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu has made several serious accusations against the United States. Shoigu said on Monday that the US was fueling geopolitical tensions to maintain its “supremacy”. He also warned of the danger of conflict between major countries.

Addressing the defense forum ‘Xiang Shan Forum’ in Beijing, Shuigu also said that the US and its Asia-Pacific allies are undermining stability in the region. It is China’s largest annual event focusing on military diplomacy. “To maintain its geopolitical and strategic hegemony, the United States is deliberately undermining the basis of international security and strategic stability,” Shoigu said. They are threatening Russia with the Organization (NATO). “Eastward expansion,” he said, is the goal of Western countries to escalate the conflict with Russia and increase the risk of conflict between major countries. This will have serious consequences.

Russia is ready to negotiate with Ukraine if the situation improves.

Regarding Russia’s war in Ukraine, Shoigu said Moscow was ready to negotiate “if the situation requires it.” Zhang Yuxia, China’s second-ranking military officer and vice chairman of the Central Military Commission, opened the three-day event in the absence of General Li Shangfu. Shangfu was removed as China’s defense minister last week. He has been away from public for two months. The Chinese government did not give a reason for Shangfu’s removal. Military representatives of many countries are participating in this event. China sees it as an opportunity to increase military cooperation with other countries and demonstrate regional leadership.

China expressed anger at America.

The US delegation was led by Shanti Karis, the Department of Defense’s principal official for China affairs. Zhang said China is willing to “build military-to-military relations with the United States based on mutual respect, peaceful coexistence and cooperation.” China suspended military ties with the US in August 2022, expressing displeasure over former US Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. Without naming the United States, Zhang criticized “countries that continue to create problems around the world.” He called for a “political settlement of the Ukraine crisis” and “a resolution by all parties to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict”. Stop violence and immediate ceasefire. (AP)
