China’s Wang Yi visits Russia ahead of possible Xi-Putin meeting

China’s top diplomat, Wang Yi, is embarking on a four-day trip to Russia to strengthen mutual political trust and prepare for a potential visit by President Vladimir Putin to Beijing in October. During his visit, Wang will hold security talks with Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev and engage in discussions with counterpart Sergei Lavrov on various issues, including high-level contacts. The purpose of Wang’s trip is to lay the groundwork for Putin’s attendance at the third Belt and Road Forum, following an invitation extended by President Xi Jinping during his visit to Moscow in March. Putin has previously attended the first two forums but has not traveled abroad since an arrest warrant was issued against him by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for alleged war crimes in Ukraine. While Putin has expressed his expectation to meet with Xi soon, he has not confirmed his travel plans to China. It is worth noting that China is not a party to the ICC. The visit will also provide an opportunity for detailed discussions on Ukraine and other issues. Wang’s previous visit to Russia in February raised concerns in the United States, which accused China and Russia of sharing a vision that could lead to border changes through force. Prior to his trip to Russia, Wang held constructive talks with White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan in Malta, which is part of a series of high-level meetings between U.S. and Chinese officials that could pave the way for a meeting between Xi and President Joe Biden.
