Sergiy Kyslytsya: Putin broke his promise to China and lied to Xi Jinping
We are talking about refraining from deploying nuclear weapons outside their territories.
Ukraine’s permanent representative to the UN, Sergiy Kyslytsya, said the Kremlin is deceiving and despising even those it claims to be its strategic partners.
“It took Putin just four days to break another commitment he recently made with the PRC leader in a joint statement signed on March 22, 2023. The document says that “all states possessing nuclear weapons should refrain from deploying nuclear weapons outside their national territories,” the permanent representative said at a meeting of the Security Council.
He drew attention to Beijing’s statement that a nuclear war cannot be won and waged, and the proliferation of nuclear weapons must be prevented. Kyslytsya also recalled that Ukraine once gave up the third nuclear potential in the world, while the Russian Federation uses nuclear for threats.
