Oleg Dyomin, Ukraine’s ambassador to China, said Chinese peacekeeping forces would be welcome to restore peace and stability in his country after President Xi Jinping said Beijing will contribute 8,000 additional troops for United Nations peacekeeping missions, according to Hong Kong’s Wen Wei Po. Xi made the pledge during his meeting with President Barack Obama of the United States in Washington DC on Sept. 25 and again expressed his support for UN peacekeeping operations when he addressed the UN General Assembly in New York three days later. Dyomin told Chinese media that peacekeeping forces from China would be welcome in Ukraine. Chinese peacekeeping forces would be a better alternative compared to Western intervention as it would seem more acceptable from the perspectives of both Russia and Ukraine.
