Russian president Vladimir Putin and Chinese leader Xi Jinping will hold talks at the end of this month. Among other things, the agenda of the talks would include an evaluation of the events of the past year, including the war in Ukraine and the tensions around Taiwan.

Since the West has turned away from Russia because of the invasion of Ukraine, Putin is increasingly tightening ties with China. Just before the invasion, the two countries already concluded a far-reaching partnership. In September, Putin and Xi met again, this time in Uzbekistan at a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SSO), which also includes countries such as India, Pakistan and Iran.

According to the Vedomosti newspaper, the upcoming meeting between Putin and Xi is unlikely to take place physically. Presumably, the two leaders will speak to each other via a video link. Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov says the official announcement of the conversation will follow soon.
