Diplomacy: Foreign Minister Baerbock visits China for the first time

Federal Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock is traveling to China for her first visit this week. Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin told the press in Beijing that Baerbock will hold the sixth round of the strategic dialogue between the two countries with her new Chinese counterpart Qin Gang during her visit from Thursday to Saturday. In addition to bilateral relations and the relationship with the European Union, it should also be about international and regional trouble spots.

The Russian war of aggression in Ukraine is likely to be the focus. During a visit to Beijing last week, French President Emmanuel Macron and EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen tried to influence head of state and party leader Xi Jinping to use his influence on Russia to end the war.
