Beijing's special representative Li Hui will visit Ukraine on May 16-17 to discuss the "political settlement" of the war.

Reuters writes about this with reference to a Ukrainian government official who spoke on condition of anonymity.

According to the source of the agency, Li will visit Ukraine on Tuesday and Wednesday. The government official did not provide additional information.

As Reuters points out, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China said that the details of Li's route would be made public later. In addition to Ukraine, the diplomat will visit Poland, France, and Germany.

For reference:

On April 26, the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, had a telephone conversation with the President of the People's Republic of China, Xi Jinping. This is the first conversation between the leaders of the countries after the full-scale war launched against Ukraine by Russia in February 2022.

China promised to send the Chinese ambassador to Russia, Li Hui, as a special representative to Ukraine and other countries for communication regarding the settlement of the "Ukrainian crisis" (war – ed.).
