Chinese President Xi Jinping urged Russian President Vladimir Putin to avoid using nuclear weapons in its war with Ukraine, and to call on German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to achieve a peace agreement through diplomacy.  Xi said in a statement that the international community should “jointly oppose the use of, or threats to use, nuclear weapons.” Even though China is in the midst of a troubled situation after threatening Taiwan’s sovereignty, Xi asked Germany and Europe to “play an important part in calling for peace and facilitating negotiations.”
