Associate Professor at the ANU Strategic and Defence Studies Centre Matthew Sussex has analysed and discussed Chinese President Xi Jinping’s upcoming visit with President Vladimir Putin in Russia and what result may be seen from their meeting.

“I think Xi is going for two reasons,” he told Sky News Australia.

“One – to demonstrate that China is providing rhetorical support for Russia, if not material support. 

“The other part is, of course, the Chinese peace plan, the 12-point peace plan which is very long on aspiration but pretty short on specific details.”
