Russia and China want to disrupt the world order, says the NSC spokesman
Kirby said the United States is closely watching what emerges from the much-heralded meetings between Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin this week in Russia.

China recently unveiled a 12-point plan to end the war between Russia and Ukraine. Kirby told host Mike Emanuel that the Biden administration remains in doubt about China’s intentions regarding this war.
“What we’ve said before,” Kirby said, “and we’re going to say it again today, that if you come out of this meeting, they’re going to call for some kind of truce, well, that’s just going to be unacceptable because that’s the way it’s going to be done.” , Mike, is to confirm the previous Russian conquest.”
Kirby said he hopes China’s president will keep open “lines of communication” with President Joe Biden and also seek the Ukrainian side of the story through talks with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
“We hope, and we’ve already said that, that President Xi will call and speak to President Zelenskyy because we believe the Chinese need to get the Ukrainian perspective here,” Kirby said.
