Xi Jinping reaffirms support for Moscow in call with Putin

Chinese President Xi Jinping reaffirmed his support for Moscow’s security concerns in his second phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin since Russia invaded Ukraine nearly four months ago, showing few signs of backing down compared to an agreement that distanced Beijing further from the West.

The conversation took place on Mr. Xi’s 69th birthday, a sign of the two leaders’ desire to strengthen a personal friendship that has helped bring Sino-Russian relations closer since the early years of the Cold War. MM. Putin and Xi have spoken several times on the Chinese leader’s birthday since Mr Xi took power in 2012.
