Chinese leader Xi Jinping with Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit in Uzbekistan, September 15, 2022

I joined India’s WION News on Friday to evaluate the visit of China’s leader Xi Jinping to Moscow, scheduled for March 20-22.

I focus on the likely discussions about the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and why the primary obstacle for China’s “peace plan” — and its move to become a diplomatic superpower — is Vladimir Putin.

I also explain why other countries, including the US and European governments, will not be unsettled by the visit — provided China does not provide significant military assistance to Russia.
