Brazilian President Luiz Inacio, Lula da Silva has stated that the United States should stop encouraging the war in Ukraine.
The US and EU have been major suppliers of arms and aid to Ukraine following Russias invasion.
Ukraines President Volodymyr Zelensky has ruled out peace talks as long as Russian President Vladimir Putin remains in power.
Lula is in Beijing for talks with Xi Jinping seeking a reset in the ChinaBrazil relationship, which saw tense moments under former leader Jair Bolsonaro.
The United States needs to stop encouraging war and start talking about peace the European Union needs to start talking about peace so that we can convince Putin and Zelensky that peace is in the interest of everyone and that war is only interesting, for now, to the two of them, Lula told reporters in Beijing.
Lula also revealed that during his talks with Chinese leader Xi Jinping, they discussed forming a group of likeminded leaders on Ukraine.
I have a theory that I have already defended with Macron, with Olaf Scholz of Germany, and with Biden, and yesterday, we discussed at length with Xi Jinping.
It is necessary to constitute a group of countries willing to find a way to make peace, Lula said.
The move by Lula reveals a growing distance from geopolitical questions preoccupying the West.
Like the leaders of South Africa, India, Syria, North Korea, Belarus, Myanmar, Brazil’s Lula has adopted a policy of nonintervention over the war in Ukraine, rebuffing efforts led by US President Joe Biden to unite the global community in opposition to Russias invasion.
