US ambassador to China hopes Beijing makes “the right choice” to push Russia to end war in Ukraine

US Ambassador to China Nicholas Burns expressed hope that China “will make the right choice” on pushing Russia to end the war in Ukraine, writes CNN.

“We hope very much that they will make the right choice, but the right choice for China is going to push Russia to adhere to international law, withdraw its troops and see the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine restored”, - Burns said virtually at an event from the US Global Leadership Coalition.

“That’s what the world wants and expects. I think the jury’s out. I can’t predict what the government of the People’s Republic will do. But that’s what we"re obviously standing for, and they know our position”, - he added.

Burns said he recently met with the Chinese envoy who traveled to Ukraine, Li Hui.
