Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez urged China’s president, Xi Jinping, to speak with his Ukrainian counterpart if Beijing wants to play a role in ending Russia’s invasion.  

“We all want peace, but we want that peace to be just and lasting, and for that to happen it has to be based on the position of the country that is being attacked,” Sánchez told reporters on Friday after meeting Xi.
