China is willing to mediate in the Russia-Ukraine conflict and provide urgent humanitarian aid to the war-torn country, its Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Monday.

The top diplomat also warned against the U.S. Indo-Pacific strategy, saying its real goal is to establish another version of NATO and maintain U.S. hegemony, which “is doomed to fail.”

Speaking at a press conference on China’s foreign policies and foreign relations during the “Two Sessions,” China’s key annual political gatherings in Beijing, Wang said that for the Ukraine issue, “China is prepared to continue to play a constructive role to facilitate dialogue for peace and work alongside the international community when needed to carry out necessary mediation,” he said.
