China's "Peace Plan" to iron out Russia-Ukraine conflict is the only glimmer of light at the end of tunnel. It unveils a game-changing opportunity for all stakeholders to liberate the world from quagmire as sending weapons will never bring peace, but add fuel to fire to exacerbate tensions and cause sufferings for ordinary people.
The recipe of "Peace" is a win-win situation for everyone. The more the cold war mentality continues to go on rampage, the more world peace risks the doom.
International big shout-out for China' 12-point peace plan is a suggestive fact that China has showcased such a "peace roadmap", which global community had been tantalizing throughout a year of on-going conflict between Ukraine and Russia.
Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in his press conference to mark the first anniversary of the conflict said that he is open to considering parts of a 12-point peace plan put forward by Beijing.
Russia said it appreciated China's plan and that it is open to achieving its goals through political and diplomatic means.
Kazakhstan's Foreign Ministry has also expressed its approval of China's 12-point peace plan for Russia's war with Ukraine, saying it is "worthy of support" based on UN principles.
Every world forum like the United Nations (UN) General Assembly (UNGA) should be used to hash out peace talks abandoning mindset of blind "supremacy and ego". World powers can really make a difference by extinguishing blazes of war. Realizing their auras and impacts, the US, NATO and the EU should subscribe to peace negotiations to end the war as soon as possible.
